Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. Do you happen to have a picture of the area so I can get a better idea of what is going on?

Top of her nose is just bald

Great, thank you so much! It does not appear to be raised, is that correct? Is she rubbing the top of her nose on anything that you can tell? Any sneezing?

No sneezing, she hasn’t rubbed on a ythif either, I work from home so I can monitor her so there doesn’t seem to be a cause of it. Not a raised bump either, just flat,

Ok, well it's most likely nothing to worry about. Sometimes animals will get this when the seasons change if they are developing later stage allergies, which is the most common cause. You can start Benadryl (1 mg/lb every 12 hours) and see if that help. There are also some autoimmune disorders in dogs that start off looking like this as well, but that would be less common.
