  • :) OK.

    A reaction to something. It sounds like dermatitis. Something she lies on? I don't think that fleas would do that.

  • Without seeing it, my guess would be puppy pyoderma. This is a very common staph infection puppies get. You may want to take the puppy to the vet just to be sure. Some infections need medications to heal, others may not be that bad. Only a vet can tell you what it really is, as other skin issues could be a concern like fungal infections or parasites.
