    Defaultflea bites/rash in armpits

    So I just noticed a small rash under each of Champ's armpits. My first thought was that it was probably flea bites (as there were just a few (5-6) small, scabby bumps under each arm). Champ is on Frontline Plus, but we still find a flea on him every once in a while.

    Anyway, he has an appointment with the vet tomorrow, but I guess I wanted to check and see what others thought. Also, is there a topical treatment we can apply to stop the itching/heal the rash? Oh - and I know its hard to diagnose something as vague as a rash without seeing it, but if anyone has other thoughts as to what this might be, let me know.

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    My only experience of this was a few years ago when my black lab was a pup. We'd only had him a few days when i noticed a rash under his arm pits and around his groin.

    As he was so young i took him to the vet who said that it was from straw mites- apparently as he was a working lab and we had had him from a farm he had been sleeping in the hay and straw in the barn and had picked them up from there.
