Baxter has broken out in bumps and lumps. There seems to be a fairly even distribution all over his body. They are little bumps and some have broken open/have scabs/pustules. I would say he had rain rot if he were a horse!
Oddly, he is not itchy. Whatever they are doing, they are doing it on their own. Ideas?

A CBC will probably tell you a lot. Hives arent always itchy, especially if autoimmune related. Bacterial skin infections, immune mediated or tick borne diseases, allergic dermatitis, cutaneous lymphoma are all reasonable diagnoses, but sometimes treating symptomatically first will rule a lot of things out. Hopefully its nothing serious! If you havent already, I would suggest a trip to the vet for some blood and can then select treatment (antihistamines vs. antibiotics vs. steroids)
My last corgi would break out in hives after every trip to one specific groomer. Took my stupid self three times to realize it was something with that person or place causing the problem. Have you taken him anywhere recently? Changed anything / opened a new bag of food / new treats/blankets/toys ?
(In defense of my stupid self, my other dog never had a problem with that groomer, hence the reason it took the third time to link the bumps and grooming!)
