Red Bumps On Face???
2 Attachment(s)
My Apollo has been acting normally, eating normally, nothing has been wrong. I noticed yesterday that there was a very small red bump above his lip, so I just thought I should watch out. Then today there were multiple red bumps under is mouth and near his eyes. They resemble pimples, but they are scabbed over. And there was a piece of his skin above his eye, but it fell off later. Is this minor or should I be concerned? Thank you!

And it is only on his snout/eyes/face area.

It looks like he has a skin infection. He's going to need to see a vet to get some antibiotics. This isn't something that can be treated at home.

Okay, I will. Thank you!
