Welcome back! Wow, long time no see. Glad you're alive & well...

Sounds like Maddie might have allergies and her itchy bumps are hives. Sounds like she's allergic to 'something' that you've yet to find. Did you go to a derm atology vet? That might be a better route than a regular vet. Just keep treating the bumps if they're drying out (try rubbing alcohol (the 70% one)), meaning they're healing. Just that they take forever to heal. The fact the bumps are still around is a sign that her allergens are active until you find the exact allergy to treat.

Hope I've helped some!

          Glad to help. No, rubbering alcohol shouldn't burn, because the bumps already scabbed so it's too old to burn (and that's why I mentioned using 70% and not the too-strong 92%- which is used for... more
