Today I went to the vet to pick up some flea meds. A guy had a Neapolitan Mastiff that had very bad skin. It didn't look like mange. It looked like a bad case of skin allergies. All his skin folds were all red and swollen. Around his eyes and in between his toes were all red and irritated. Are allergies common with this breed? I felt really bad for him. I'm pretty sure that's why they were there. They were leaving as I came in.
