Thanks, all. I am not a run-to-the-doctor (or vet) kind of person as it is, but I did bring her in because of the itching. Bumps are simple acne and the vet said not to worry unless she was getting many more or they looked inflamed/infected. The original four bumps are nearly gone and no new ones have shown up.
As for the itching, the vet said it is probable allergies. At this point I am going to do some research, diet tweaks, benadryl, and try some of the natural solutions I've read about in other posts. She is not
at all miserable, scratching or licking herself raw, or otherwise in bad shape at this time, so I will try home solutions before taking any drastic (and expensive) steps.
