Dog has raised bumps on one side of his back

So my 80lb Dogue De Bordeaux cross has some raised bumps on one side of his body- I can only tell since the fur has raised up.
I don't live at home with him, since I'm at uni, but when I came home to visit my Dad informed me that he's only had them since this morning.

They don't seem to be bothering him, he hasn't been scratching, biting etc. and he doesn't mind me stroking the area.

If they're still there tomorrow I'll take him to the vet, but is there anything I can do for him right now? And any ideas what it could be? We haven't tried anything new on him, and his bed blankets were only washed yesterday with our regular washing powder.

It's hard to say, if you can get some pictures of it it may help us. With it only being on one side, and not being able to see it, my best guess would be that he laid in something that caused the reaction.

The most I recommend is bathing him if he did lay in something, and it wasn't insects, then a bath will help get whatever it is off of him. If he were itching I'd suggest benedryl but since he isn't then I'd just wait for the vet appt and see what they say.

Here are some pictures- at first I thought he just needed a bit of a brush, but they definitely are bumps.
Even though he doesn't seem to be finding them itchy, it makes me a bit itchy just to look at them! :L

ditto the benedryl... at it is 1mg per lb for the dose... though i would probably still take him to the vet, and start working out what caused the reaction!

Thanks for your help guys!
We didn't have any Benadryl so we just waited for the vet appointment.
She said it was definitely an allergic reaction and he probably brushed something when he was out for a walk.

She gave him a steroid shot and an anti-histamine (Piriton) and I have some more to give him later, so hopefully it will go down soon!

Unhappy Mysterious Bumps!

My 7 month old puppy has the same thing! It's now been 24 hours that she's had it and it's gotten worse. She is a Rhodesian Ridgeback / Pitbull mix. It's really hard for us to figure out exactly what caused this as:
1) We just took her to a dog park yesterday.. She could've rubbed against something causing hives or some kind of allergic reaction.
2) I bathed her in hot water after the park and rubber her dry with a towel, not knowing both are totally bad and can irritate a dog's hair follicle causing bumps.
3) We used a new shampoo, although it's supposed to NOT cause allergic reaction. It's called Healthy Clean Pet Oatmeal and Aloe Shampoo for Irritated, Dry, Sensitive skin. I couldn't imagine it being this though!
4) I gave her these new sweet potato treats immediately after her bath, she could be allergic to them or one of the ingredients in it. We got them from LootPets and they're called Invasion of the Sweet Potato Crisps.

At first, I thought it was just matts all over her fur, so I used a brush and a furminator and this made it WAY worse or maybe just more visible. It's only on her back, back of neck, and back legs. She has shown no signs of itchiness or change in behavior, diet, etc. Although, when I did brush or touch the hair, her skin would twitch and she looked uncomfortable. We decided to give her a Benedryl and see if it helps, if it is hives or an allergic reaction. Hopefully she'll look better tomorrow. We're going to avoid the sweet potato treats and see if it goes away completely. If not, we're off to the vet!

Lightbulb The answer is HIVES!

For anyone that wants to know, I took my sweet girl to the vet today and she was diagnosed with hives due to an allergic reaction from a shampoo I purchased on Amazon called Healthy Clean Pet Oatmeal & Aloe 100% Natural Organic Anti Itch, for Dry Irritated Sensitive Skin. My vet said some companies can say they're products are scientifically developed, but they aren't. He told me to rinse her in Dawn and continue the Benedryl. I rinsed her fur off and used the Dawn soap and she already looks much better! Hopefully, with a few more doses of Benedryl, she'll be 100% better!
