My French bulldog looks as though she has staph infection,

Customer Question
My French bulldog looks...

My French bulldog looks as though she has staph infection, but when I took her to the vet they just gave her apaquel for a week and nothing changed. Should I have a full scraping and testing done to figure out what this issue is?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infections your French Bulldog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the French Bulldog's name and age?

Athena and she is 21 months

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Athena?

She has gotten hives a couple of times as well. I have changed her food to Salmon based and not Chicken All grain free
