Help!! Skin reaction.

I don't know what he got into but he is covered in bumps. You can see in this pict that his skin is red and irritated.

He's really itchy and can't get comfortable.

This alone says a vet visit is warranted.
Have you given him benadryl?

I hope he feels better tomorrow. Definitely need to find out what caused this, looks painful.

Any changes in food, did he get into anything in the yard, new plants, insecticides, etc? Is it just concentrated on his muzzle?

After you shampoo, throughly dry. Proabaly better to keep it dry than moist.

Well I woke up in the mornin and it looked the same so I took him to the clinic. By the time I got there it had mostly cleared up. They said it was a allergic reaction to something. It was hives. They gave me some steroids to give him. Once I got home I gave him one an he passed out on the couch next to me. A hour later and the hives were back in full force. But then faded away later that night. Hopefully these pills clear up the problem.
