Did they do a FNA on the lumps (fine needle aspiration)?

Did the lumps just suddenly appear or were they slow growing?

What's the antibiotics for?

What's the benedryl for?

Are they suspecting an infection or allergic reaction as the cause of the lumps?

They extracted via needle the different lumps and points to make a bacteriological cultivation that would take 15 days to know the results

Yes the lumps appeared out of nowhere and have not been growing slowly

The antibiotics are because she had a wound in the leg shown in the image to avoid infection and to stop anything else from affecting it

It was sent for an antialergic topic to rule out allergies and because it helps to control substances that provoke the lumps

We do not know yet we are in treatment for her until we get back the results reason why i am reaching out to the community to see what other profesionals and people with pet experience think some of the lumps bleed and we are trying to make sure there is no contamination to her

I've more experience with fatty tumors then the type of lumps your dog has, but from the pictures I've seen, and different articles I'm reading, I think the vet is probably right in thinking it's bacterial.

I'd think the chance of it being contagious is pretty low. Just follow good handwashing procedures after cleaning the area.

Here's an article on bacterial lumps in dogs that explains the different ones that can develop and how it's diagnosed and treated.
Fatty Layer or Nodule Under the Skin in Dogs | petMD

Here's another one that lists some of the other types of lumps and how each is diagnosed and treated.

Poor dog. Growing up we had a Scottish Terrier and she had bad allergies. She had problems with flea bites(not what that looks like) and food allergies. Her food allergies cleared up once I switched her to a raw diet. I don't know if that would help here or not but thought I'd mention it.
