Pot Bellied Pigs/Bumps on my pbp

Question
Bumps
Bumps  
My boar has the bumps pictured on his under side and nose. They dont bother him but im not sure what they are.

Answer
I am not a veterinarian and can not make a medical diagnosis over the internet.

These appear to be bug bites. Bugs can't bite on pigs in most places, but the belly, nose, behind the ears and inner legs are softer spots where bugs can bite. You can use any soothing ointment made for people on your pig. Keep an eye on them, make sure they don't become infected.
