Hi, I am Dr Megan and I will be helping you this evening.

Could you send through a photo of the bump please?

Is Loki itching the area?

Lots of things can cause bumps on the skin including allergies, infections, warts or growths/masses.  I will await the photo and then I will be able to help you with more information.

He is licking it alot. It's near his privates. I can't find how to upload a photo
Expert:  Dr Megan replied 14 days ago.

There should be a little paper clip sign on this page so you can attach a photo?

Expert:  Dr Megan replied 12 days ago.

Hi, I would be happy to help you further if you can provide more details or a photo of the lump and it’s size and exact location.

lots of things can cause these signs from a skin infection, wart, mass, skin parasites or even the normal anatomy. If he is licking the area a lot you should make a vet appointment tto ensure it is nothing  serious, but I am happy for you to provide more details so I can help you further.
