|I was supposed to write that, not Roswell... Anyway, Spencer, if it is Schanuzer Bumps, it's something you want to treat soon, but I will also warn you that sometimes it can be incredibly difficult to completely cure. I had this condition. Most of the time it wasn't too bad, but there were a couple times where the bumps did become infected and required antibiotics. So, I would get them checked out sooner than waiting until June. If this is what it is, it's not necessarily life threatening, but infections are very annoying. Be on the lookout too for sebaceous cysts. These are a little bigger than the bumps you're seeing now and they feel softer. They can show up pretty quickly, and then rupture. The material is kind of bloody, and cottage cheese like. It's really gross.
Since it's something that can affect you for your entire life in varying degrees, if you get started on a high quality diet (sometimes it can be triggered by allergies to foods like corn or beef), and are bathed regularly with the medicated shampoo, you will be a lot more comfortable in the long run.
