Default raw chin?

Belle has this thing under her chin. I can't really describe it other than there is no hair, it looks almost raw and it's bumpy.

she doesn't seem bothered by it that I can tell but I was wondering if anyone knew what it might be?

I tried to get a couple pics but these were the best I could get




PS- forgive the food remnants on her lips lol

Well looks like its Canine dermatitus. You said it wasnt bothersome so I am assuming no pus in the bumps either making it bacterial. I do see some redness though but its sort of hard to tell for sure. Is it red around or on the bumps?

Well when I took the picture they were bleeding a tiny bit. Sometimes they bleed a bit but most of the time it's just bumps. it's hard to tell... her skin is pink where it's raw looking

she goes to the vet soon for her vaccs so we will make sure to mention it to the vet.

My uncle's dog, Buddy, would get that, though not bleeding. I forgot what the reason was, but it was solved by wiping his chin after eating.

No clue here !!! Keep the area clean until you vet . Does anyone here think that Gold Bond powder might help ??

Well I haven't called them yet... need to find out what Brians work schedule is lol. but she is due for her shots by the tenth

I will try wiping her mouth after she eats.

I've noticed the little blood spots mostly after she comes in from outside or if she gets rowdy with Beezer

If it is bacterial, neosporan might help but I would rub it in lightly and remove any excess.
Also I am sure you already do but clean the bowls after eating.

Pit had something similar looking to that when he was about 8 months old. Turns out he had canine acne on his chin and they'd bleed if he rubbed it on things. It went away on its own after 5 months or so.

I don't know what it is, but I hope it starts to feel better soon!

maybe she got into something, and it irritated her skin?
