Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

Just to confirm the red spots appeared after the bath? If this is the case then my primary concern would be that she is having a reaction to the shampoo and if you have an oatmeal-based shampoo or even ivory/ dawn soap then please use this over her with ten minute contact time before rinsing

In addition, please administer benadryl at 1 mg/ pound every 8 hours tonight to help with the reaction. It may cause mild sedation but should help with the redness and provide relief

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both tonight

Good morning, I wanted to check in on your Yorkie to see if the recommendations I gave aided in reducing the red spots on her skin? Is she comfortable? I would love an update when you are able!

Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you both today!
