she also has some on her lady parts. Its only in a small area and the only spot on her body that doesnt have hair. I dont think its ringworm and shes up to date on all her shots and flea and tick/dewormer. Any ideas? maybe allergies? she hasnt always had it but its been getting worse over the last couple weeks. How do you treat allergies for dogs anyway? We havent changed her food or anything, nothing is different. I tried to take a pic...



ok, i am jsut seeing a red X on the pic i tried to post so here is the link...

That looks like more than an allergic rash. I'd take her to the vet.

Get her into a vets office ASAP, it could be many things.

possibly a staph infection. try putting some rubbing alcohol or peroxide on it or alternate using one in the morning and the other at night. certainly can't hurt until you get Vegas to the vet.

DO NOT use peroxide or alcohol on the sores, it will only make the problem worse. From your picture it looks like some sort of skin infection, but there's no way to tell for sure without seeing it in person and possibly doing a skin scrape. Personaly I wouldn't wait till monday. Infections can take over very quickly and if it's came on suddenly and/or has spread that's even more reason to bring her in ASAP!
