What breed is he?Can you please post pictures of the bumps?When did they begin?
I don't think there is any way to be certain what has caused these bumps. However, I can tell you that it's not uncommon for dogs to wind up with bacterial infections after grooming as many of the same supplies are used for multiple dogs including brushes, combs, clippers, bottles of shampoo, etc.There is also the possibility that these are allergy related.I would recommend a physical exam, however, if you wish to try at-home therapy antihistamines won't hurt and may alleviate the itching. I like Zyrtec best for dogs, but you can find others and their dosing amounts here: http://cheyennewest.com/antihistamines-for-dogs-cats/
