    He’s had the odd spot since about 9 weeks old he’s 4 months now so perfect age for puppy acne and he has quite a few pustule spots on his mussel and under his chin but I’ve noticed his neck is red also and it has a smell to it I have attached pics . It doesn’t bother him at all

    I can't see your pictures, but it does sound like puppy acne. Unless it's very severe I don't give antibiotics. I just make sure to use stainless bowls and clean them frequently. I also wipe their faces with a cider vinegar mixture. Some people have good luck with stridex pads. I've also used Mal-A-Ket wipes in the past.

    Thanks I’ve managed to get the pics on , he has steel bowls I’ll just have to make sure I wipe his face and I’ll try the cider vinegar as I’ve read that somewhere else. Someone’s advised hibiscus scrub x
