Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.

My concern for your sweet Plumps is that if she is older, this could be a sign of skin cancer if these lesions will not heal. This can be serious for her. This also could be caused by insect bites or allergies and if she scratches at these, it will not heal. It is important that you have your vet examine Plumps to know which is causing this so the correct treatment can be given to ease her discomfort. I cannot tell you exactly what is causing this until there is an exam so for now, apply a Benadryl creme to this area every 8 hrs. This will not hurt Plumps if she licks this off and if this is an allergic reaction, it will help.

Does that make sense to you?

Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.
