I think Hammer has a rash..

I was petting him on his belly and i see 3 skin irritation spots they are pilling and red... then around his balls ( ) he has some more and missing hair.. he is not covered with them just a few areas that he has some.. I gave him benadryl when i saw it.. but I am worried! I am waiting on my DH to come home and bathe him that way he can be clean and we can deal with this if they are still there tomorrow.. any ideas what this is? I switched his food about 3 weeks ago... he hates it.. not sure if this is the issue. PLease advice!

thanks!

You should probably just get him checked by a vet. Even if you get advice here, if he needs treatment, only the vet can give it.

I think you should go to the vet for your own peace of mind
