Pimple bumps under chin

Jackson developed, several weeks ago, some pimple bumps under his chin, I took him to the vet and he gave me some wash and some cream to put on it and said it should take care of it...Well since Ive been using it, its gotten worse. My doberman, years ago, also had this and cant remember what I did but it went away. Anyone have any suggestions and does anyone know what causes it??

Can you post any pictures of this? Dobies are known for getting these pimple like bumps on their chins. My Deuce had them not too long ago and I used peroxide to clean the area twice a day and then put an antifungal and antibacterial cream (phytobalm) on them.

I have heard plastic bowls and bowls that aren't cleaned frequently can cause this. The cleaner and dryer you can keep the area the better off you will be. It took about 10 days for them to completely clear up once I started the above.

Good luck!! It usually isn't a big deal but if you don't get it under control it can lead to bigger issues like infection and such!

Yes, I can post pics but not until tomorrow probably. I think that is what I used before, peroxide and neosporin...I will try that again. He has just started drinking out of a stainless steel bowl but cant get him to eat out of one yet. For some reason, the shiny metal wiggs him out (dont ask me why, its so weird --haha) I have a hard enough time getting the boy to eat sometimes so I havent tried putting the food in it yet. I have to mix his food with water and cow tripe to get him to eat and its watery so maybe that's why the bumps have started (now that I think about it, it started about the time I started the tripe. I wash his bowls with soap and water after every meal so I know that's not it, it must be the mushy meal I mix up - sigh !

If he won't eat from a stainless steel bowl use a ceramic one. The problem with plastic is that even washing carefully with soap and hot water doesn't tend to get all of the bacteria--it's porous--ceramic and s/s aren't.

Along with washing his bowls every time he eats and washing out the water bucket at least once a day you should also wash and dry his chin each time he eats.

Some of the cleansers used for acne in humans work well on dogs--the one from the vet that worked really well on the only dog I had who tended to have chin pimples was Pyoben--it's a salve. I used pyoben shampoo after each meal, dried the chin and then applied the ointment. It usually took a week to 10 days to clear up an active infection.

Bumps Under Dobies Mouth-Plastic toys, bowl, etc. Culprit

Both my Dobermans one blue(older, now 12), the other 1 1/2 experienced these bumps. My older dogs went away years ago, but now my younger one is experiencing these ugly bumps. One vet said that it was puppy acne (was not). Another younger vet told me it was PLASTIC ALLERGY-- The younger vet who I thought didn't know what she was talking about was correct.

After she gave me this diagnosis I continued to let my dog play with
PLASTIC TOYS, ETC. -- I applied creams, washed with astringent (sea breeze)- but still let Laila play with the plastic finally -- I took away the plastic toys, KONGS included. My dog loves to chew up toys and swallow but loved the KONG (so DID I because it gave her a diversion AND IS DURABLE). But I returned the toys to the PetStore and told them she was allergic -- Laila looked for that toy(KONG) for a while -- Now it has been a couple of weeks and the bumps are clearing up - I wipe her chin with the astringent and use Peroxide and an antifungal shampoo to spot wash and kept the plastic away from her (I MADE TOYS OUT OF OLD JEAN MATERIAL). The bumps are drying up and clearing away. I KNOW IT WAS THE PLASTIC and not something that dogs or dobies just get. TAKE AWAY THE PLASTICS.
