Hi Sir or Madam,
My name is ***** ***** I’ve been involved professionally with dogs in the health and behavioral fields for over 18 years. It will be my pleasure to work with you today.
It sounds like you are describing pyoderma, which is a skin infection. This sometimes happens with puppies. You will want to have the Vet examine her and prescribe the proper medication to clear this up. Antibiotics are frequently prescribed. An antibacterial shampoo may help as well as creams containing benzoyl peroxide, ethyl alcohol or chlorhexidine in them.
