He is three. He’s been getting little lumpy patches on his skin. Some on his are like pink boils/abscesses. On his face and around his eyes. He is a blue Shar Pei.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Max

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Max?

Yes, he ‘s pacing and throwing his head around and up like he sees a bug flying around him.

Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. Do you happen to have a picture of the areas of skin so I can get a better idea of what is going on?

Thank you, ***** ***** the pictures. This looks like a skin infection around the eye. Typically in a Shar Pei it is a staph infection. I would recommend starting him on some Benadryl (1mg/lb) every 12 hours to help with the inflammation. He is going to need to go to the vet for some oral antibiotics to get this completely cleared up however.
