I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Regretfully, the photos are too out of focus to assess properly. Can you move your camera farther back from the skin and try again, please?

Thank you. Did you shave away the hair or did it fall out unaided?

It fell out by itself I gave her next guard that’s what the vet told me to give her but they didn’t scrape her they just looked at it
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

Thank you. This doesn't look like a mange or flea saliva allergy which NexGuard would address nicely and so I don't mind the use of NexGuard but instead, it looks like a papular eruption typical of a short hair pyoderma - bacterial skin infection which is best treated with an antibiotic in the cephalosporin class such as cephalexin for 3-4 weeks and 1 week past clinical signs plus shampooing twice weekly in a shampoo containing either benzoyl peroxide or chlorhexidine. It should be skin scraped to confirm or deny if the demodectic mange mite underlies the infection. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.

Where can I get that shampoo
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

You can find them over the counter/online where dog supplies are sold. Her vet hospital might have one on their over the counter shelf as well.
