crusty scabs/bumps

My silkie terrier developed a skin condition that looks like crusty scabs or bumps. She has a handfull of them.  I called the vet and he instructed to apply triple antibiotic ointment.  I did and the "bumps" went away for a while, but they keep coming back.  I can "pick" the scabs and they will go away for a couple of weeks.  She does not have the crusty bumps anywhere else on her skin.  They are just locate at the base of the spine, near her tail and on the "shoulder" area.   Otherwise she is in good health.  What do you recommend?

My sweet boy suffers with scabby like things occasionally.  We use a medicated shampoo, Oxydex, from the vet.  Sometimes I bathe him every day or 2 to get them to clear up.  It really works wonders.  Between outbreaks we use an aloe and oatmeal shampoo that is very soothing to him, his smile says it all.  Good luck to you and your little one.

I am having the same thing with my Yorkie. Have you been to the vet? It is so strange. It seems like they are bites of some kind, but he doesn't seem to really notice them. I can pick them off and he isn't phased. I brush his bootie and he doesn't notice? It is almost like they are not there. I have him on Revolution, so I know they are not flea bites. Let me know if you find out anything interesting. Thanks!

If the bites are only on his rear end, then they're probably flea bites. (Although they usually do not scab).  Even on Revolution, the flea still has to bite to die. If they are other places like tummy & back, then it's probably Staph Sores. Bathing with an antibacterial shampoo makes a huge difference. If he is eating a just average food, upgrading to a premium will help. A canine multi-vitamin will also help....With better nutrition and vitamins, the excess of Staph will cease to exsist.....The shampoo will heal the sores he has and help prevent new ones from forming....Hope this helps.....Good luck...Karla
