I just picked up a 6 week old puppy. I noticed a little bump on her face. doesnt seem to be getting bigger, just thought I would asked here before taking her to the vet.

Sorry for the huge pic.

My dogs get those every now and then. My vet said they were probably ingrown hairs and that they would go away. They are always gone withing a week or two.

My dog gets red, and sometimes bloody marks on what I call her chin....and I think that hers are just from toys (irritation). The ingrown hair explanation sounds right though. Let us know if you find anything out.

Could be an ingrown hair. I had a dog that was allergic to plastic, I changed all his bowls to stainless steel and his face didn't break out anymore. He had quite a few, his chin, jowls, whisker pads, all were affected. It was pretty gross.
