Those type lesions can be caused by several things in a dog this age. Staph infection, allergic reaction, yeast infection, contact allergies and immune mediated skin problems are just a few. If they look like pimples a staph infection would be most likely. They are not uncommon in dogs. If she is spayed it is not hormone related. The sores should be cleaned and dried with soap and warm water. Topical Neosporin or bacitracin can be applied twice a day. You need to hold onto her for 5-10 minutes afterward to make sure she doesn't lick it off before it soaks in. If more sores appear, plain oral Benadryl can be used at 1/2-1 mg per pound body weight every 8 hours as needed to rule out an allergic cause. If the spots to not respond to topical ointment you will need oral meds from your vet as well.
