Hi!
My year old pit bull/mastiff mix has a type of rash on her chin that showed up a few days ago. Last night I noticed it started to bleed a bit, so I put some hydrogen peroxide on it. This morning it didn’t look much better at all so I began thinking it must be some sort of allergic reaction. So I gave her some benedryl to try to help the irritation. But I began to see pictures online of dog acne? I had never heard of it before and I’ve been around dogs my entire life. Some advice would be greatly appreciated!

Take your dog to the vet. That could be any number of things and, your vet will be able to run tests and see what it is and, give you the proper treatment for it.

Very possibly acne, but you really need your Vet to confirm and treat. We had a cat, years ago that had a pretty good case of acne on his chin. It was long enough ago, that I don't really recall how we treated it.
