Logan's Itchy Bumps
Logan has been getting itchy bumps on his arms, legs, and torso for several days now. They erupt either as an itchy semi-round elevated bump surrounded by a flushed area or as an elevated line also itchy and surround by redness. He's been spraying them with Benadryl and they quickly subside only lasting less than an hour. That makes it hard to take him to the doctor because they come and go so quickly. They itch like crazy when present and look a lot like hives except I've never seen hives in a semi-straight line like on his arm in the picture above
This photo shows one of the line type and a few of the semi-round ones. I was thinking allergy to the dog, but we were out of town for a couple of days and away from the dog and he still got them. I do think it must be some kind of contact dermatitis. Any ideas?
