My dog as hundreds of very small Pin point bumps under her skin on her belly. They seem to have appeared very suddenly. What could it be?

    Might be nettle rash.

    Stinging nettle rash presents as raised bumps or hives that are often light in color and up to a centimeter in diameter. The skin surrounding the hives may be red. The area of the skin that's affected depends upon how much of the skin has come into contact with the stinging nettles.

    There are very many  possible reasons for such a condition. I recommend therefore that you consult a vet Who will highly probably pinpoint the cause for you accurately.

    It could be any of probably a thousand things.  With MY dog it was an allergy to wool.  Sounds crazy, and it took forever, but that's what she's allergic to.

    There are so many skin problems with dogs that it takes a Vet to diagnose just what it is.  It could be an allergy, it could be a dermatitis, it could be some kind of rash.  The possibilities are endless.  You need a Vet to diagnose just what it is.

    The vet will examine your dog and likely do bloods to see what is wrong and can give you the answer...... so make a vet appointment and go and find out

    Possibly your dog may have Pyoderma.  Bacterial skin infections are called pyoderma, which translates from Greek to “pus” and “skin.” Pyoderma typically causes lesions that look like pimples and can also cause crusty, dry, flaky skin. Hair loss and itchiness can also occur.

    Your dog can get pyoderma as a result of trauma to the skin, like an abrasion or cut, excessive moisture, or as a secondary condition. Puppies are prone to puppy pyoderma in areas without a lot of hair, such as their underarms and groin. Hereditary factors can also play a role in skin infections for both puppies and adult dogs.


    Your dog may also have some type of rash due to a contact allergy. If concerned, or it worsens - see your vet.

    She may have gotten into something to which she's allergic. Keep an eye on it. If it gets worse or causes a lot of scratching, a vet visit would be reasonable.
