Rebel has sore spots on his underside now.

I just gave Rebel my "rott" a bath and he has sore spots on his underside now. They aren't bleeding but they are raw, there are three that I can see so far. Would this have anything to do with the allergies? Or do you think it is something else entirely? Any suggestions would help and what can i put on it? Can I put antibotic (sp?) ointment on it? Any opinions would be appreciated. In my last post about his licking, I mentioned when I took him to the vet they said he didn't have any parasites when they did the skin scraping.

Sorry, but I think he has to go back to the vet. It might be an allergic reaction to the shampoo. If a doggy's skin is already sensitive, you have to be so careful with shampoos. The reason I say he needs a vet is because a dog I know had an allergic reaction to shampoo and it just kept spreading and spreading... It looked horrible and lasted at least 2 months. If she had gone to the vet earlier, it definitely wouldn't have gotten so bad...
