Default bumps on snout?

Hi everyone...My 9 month old for some reason, has bumps on the top of his snout. The vet said it's likely an allergic reation to something. Anyone have this happen before? It happened 3 times so far. Last night there was 6 small bumps and they migrated into 2 huge bumps over a couple of hours. I gave benadryl and they eventually went away (after 2 hrs). He just got another one tonight... not as severe as last night. Any ideas, thoughts, advice?

We havn't changed anything in his "world" (same food, same everything)

sounds like an allergy or a bug bite. What do you feed him? My lab gets benedryl in the spring and early summer for outdoor allergies, but its winter...so maybe your food?

We ended up treating him with a corticosteroid and an antibiotic and it went away. We assumed something bit him, since he had it 3 days in a row and then just stopped.

I will try and post a pic. It has been coming and going for the past week or so. It looks exactly like the bumps on GDSUNSHINE's snout!! I havn't changed his food and nothing else in his environment has changed either.

I thought it might be our laundry detergent b/c it happened after i washed the cover to his bed. So I ran the cover back through the wash in hot water and no soap...still to no avail!
