PLEASE HELP! My dog is having all types of problems.....

my 2 y/o pitbull mix boy named kratos has been healthy his whole life so far until this last 3 days. It started with his paw having a bump inside the webbing of his toes a few weeks ago. Soaked it in water and Epsom salt like i was told to do and it most definitely swelled down. Then the last 4 days have been the worst for me and kratos, he started growing bumps on his back like mosquito bites. One of the bumps grew as large as a nickle and red. Then the area around his mouth started to become red and swollen. THEN the outside toe of his left paw started getting red, swollen, bumpy and kinda infected looking. THEN! his "elbow" started to swell on his other back leg. AND on top of it all his neck started to swell and you can feel his thyroid swollen. Well since last night his thyroid swelling has gone down, but still swollen. The bump on his back has dried up but it looks like he's starting to lose fur, the redness around his mouth, swollen "elbow" and his nasty swollen paw haven't gone away. I've been giving him antibiotics and benedryl. I don't know what he has or what to do. PLEASE somebody help me!!

Did you take him to the vet? If the vet wasn't able to tell you what's going on I'd take him to another vet for a second opinion.

Good luck! I hope Kratos feels better soon!

looks like it could be food allergies did you switch up his food? different/new treats?

He needs to go to the vet. you won't know the right doses or what it is with out it.

It seems that it might be occurred due to food allergies, what kind of food are you feeding ? I guess it might be of well known brand, my friend's dog had the same problem. I think its time to take him for vet.
