Looks very much like when Hans had an episode of dog acne. It cleared up quickly with Duoxo chlorhexidine wipes.
I do think it can be food related, because if he has an allergic reaction and the skin gets irritated, bacteria can get in there and cause a small infection.

|dieselpower65||The yard has not changed nor has he done anything different back there. He has pretty much the same routine and goes all the same places. The reason i mentioned the food change is thats the only thing that has changed for him and thats when he started getting a few bumps under his mouth also. And he has had worse gas then he used to . The only other thing is treats which he doesn't get a lot of.|

I don't think this is food related, so the switch is not a big deal. YARD, what is going on outside during play when your not around. Digging, nesting, thorn bushes, bee sting ect.. ??
Something else, should not be a big deal, they heal up and go away. It does not look like fungus. I have never heard of acne on animals and I don't know it all. Tell them/us activity's. One dog I had - had a bump like that on his front upper gum line. It went away after my friend played with him with a toy and the bump was disturbed, by the toy. Wierd story.. Google: dog mouth sores, it's close enough..

|dieselpower65||what other signs of an allergic reaction would you be able to see if he was allergic to the dog food|

|dieselpower65||Well the only problem with going back to royal canin is they switched there ingredients. I wanted to get a better dog food for him anyways the only thing i can think is switch the food again to another brand. And the bumps will go away within a few days so thats why i think its acne.|

my guy had a bump like that when he was much younger. it was a small skin infection that needed antibiotics. I don't think it's dog acne
edit - just googled dog acne and it does look alot like that...so you might be right. I would take him to a vet for a professional opinion. and like the person before me I'm far from an expert

|huntergreen||my guess would be allergic reaction. go back back to old food and see if this reaction stops.|
