I'm not sure if the photos are good enough. I searched online and the red spots on his belly look like impetigo. The one under his arm looks different. I adopted him abpit 5 yrs,ago, and he has had major issues with ear infection all his life.

Got em

Give me a minute :)


Okay those are little pustules/papules

Most likely bacterial related BUT some of these are actually allergic disease related

I would have the veterinarian scrape one of these and look at the cells under the microscope

That will give them the definitive diagnosis
