Q. My dog has these black splotch sores all over his body. He is very sensitive to the touch and then they get crusty. I keep Front Line on him.l

A. They need to be properly examined and investigated by your vet. It could be a dermatitis or pyoderma which isn't going to improve with frontline. Depending upon the diagnosis he may need antibiotics and possibly pain relief.
