Yes, very recently.  Trooper has folliculitis (it was presenting as white patches on both of his shoulders).  His vet has him on oral antibiotics for four weeks to address the underlying infection.

Yes, it is pretty common in young doberman pups.  Harley at a year is just starting to get over the bumps.  You will need antibiotics like Agalang stated.

Yes he is on antibiotics and being washed with Pyroben. How long did they last? I feel so bad for the puppy he is only 4 months old.
