    Skin problem small bumps, yeast? allergy?

    Hey everybody, nice to be here!!! I have been reading the forum for a long time now, I have a cream Frenchie called Huey, since march he has been developing some skin issues, at first the vet said it was yeast and give him some chlorhexidine shampoo, ketoconazole shampoo, and also some ketoconazole pills, then we switched the food for skin sensitive food, after some time the yeast infection started to disappear and the vet recommended some topic medicine with Gentamicin + Dexamethasone + Ketoconazole but it didn't help, I got tired and started reading blog posts and a mix from white vinegar + peroxide did the trick! now Huey was free of yeast, but just a couple of days later he started developing small bumps in the skin, they look like pimples at the first stages, then they convert into dark crusts, then they start to create small black particles over it, and later they convert into bald spots, they feel thicker than the rest of the skin and the ones near the tail make Huey to scratch on every furniture.

    we are located in Cartagena - Colombia on hot - humid weather all year, he is a 100% apartment dog, he is 1 year and 12 days :p

    I appreciate any recommendations while I find another vet:

    these are pictures at different stages, i will try to order them based on the stage of the bump:

    That looks like a staph infection.... for food try to avoid chicken and grains if you can and add a probiotic to help strengthen immune system

    See if you can get off the lamb, it can be a high allergen. Try to get on duck or turkey

    What did the vet say? I stay away from chicken and other warm/hot proteins for my very sensitive female Frenchie. She does the best on duck (cold protein) and salmon and beef which are neutral.
