Crusty Bumps

Has anyone had to deal with crusty bumps on there dogs back.  They have just started.  They are a little red and seem sore.  I started to bath her back in epson salts and warm water.  My other bully had mites and I found a recipe on line that really worked.  I don't think this looks anything like he had.  The vet set that other dogs could not get the mites from him.  He is 100% better.   Any help with this would be great.  Thanks

You should have him checked...

It could be a staph infection and that would need antibiotics to clear up. Our Oliver gets that frequently.

Probably Staph

besure the vet actually scraps one of the crusty lesions and checks it to besure what antibiotic is appropriate.

I would first atempt either

I would first atempt either apple cider vinegar or listerine. Apply to a cotton ball/gauze pad and dab it generously on the affected area. I have found personally that apple cider vinegar works best for me. See if this helps the issue. If it doesn't improve, see your vet.

I did take her to the vet

I did take her to the vet yesterday . and she did a scraping of the area.  She did not find anything because the day before I had put on a solution that I found on the internet for mange.  It worked well.  She said to keep using it and if the scabs come back she will give me a percription .  Thanks for everyones advice.
