Identify this rash?

Hi think i should explain my situation here.
I have a dog (a terrier mix)thats about older then 10 years. When i got her at the shelter about 4 years ago i found out she has lyme disease, and cataracts. Lately over the winter i noticed she has been weakening so i brought her to the vet because she has gotten skinnier and had problems laying and getting up from naps. I figured it was just her lyme disease taking effect even worse. Aside from her age and disease i noticed a small rash under her front leg like near the "arm pit" of the dog. I figured it was just some rash and so the good doctor gave me gentimyasin or something, some kind of spray. I have been using the spray on her for almost 3 days now and this rash does not look any better. So i here i am thinking this does not look like a normal rash anymore it looks really bad and brownish! Now i am thinking its a tumor?? Iam really worried for my best friend here, i know i should call the vet back and i am going to but i am curious as to what other people think this could be, i enclosed some pictures of this rash, you can see theres a red lump near the top of the rash. I hope my puppy isnt getting older and starting to "retire" on me..

Have your parents take the dog to the vet, that is always the right answer if your dog is not well.
