The following email was received from a worried owner. 

Does anybody know what this is? The skin is very thin and does bleed easily.
If anybody knows and can give some advice it will be highly appreciated.

Sorry Mate never seen that before, but it definatly looks like a trip to the vet will be needed

OOH, that looks very sore. You need to have that checked at the vet asap! Could maybe be a mange or acne but either way it needs meds I suspect or a diet change. Good luck!

I agree rather visist a vet and get an informed opinion, diagnosis and treatment. 

Just some questions, is this rash/sores only on the chin and lips? is this a female that had a litter recently?

The reason I am asking is that I have had something similar in one of my females some time back, it started after she had a litter, from excesive licking and rubbing her chin on the carpets/blankets.  I washed the sores with F10 solution and rubbed plain vaseline on the sores. 

I dont think this is mange, it could be a allergy etc As already stated rather visit your vet. 

My girl gets a milder form of this on her chin when we give her raw bones and she rubs her chin on them. It clears up by itself within a few days usually. Is there something in particular this dog is rubbing itself on? I would wash with a warm saline solution and dry properly a couple of times a day to begin with along with removing the irritant if it is something specific :-)
