    Kelly is right, relax, it's going to be okay until you can see your regular vet. It's definitely allergies. Has she had vaccines lately or fleas and flea treatment? the front on the neck looks like a hot spot that's been there a couple of days. the hind quarter spots could be the secondary staph infection from the immune system being stressed. you can relax, give her a couple of Benedryl like Kelly said and let her relax.
    Stress makes skin issues seem worse for you and the dog.
    If you haven't had vaccines or flea treatment lately and you want to try something holistic, you could give her a simple bath
    (not oatmeal shampoo) and then final rinse with 1 gal. water to 1 cup white vinegar. and leave it on.
    You are already feeding her well and giving a good supplement

    I get a product from Amazon called Douxo they make pads , shampoo, mouse and some other good products. I really like their products for spot treatments and the shampoo works great too. the pads 3% Chlorhexidine are a dream for folds, ropes and tails

    Let me know what the vet says and keep calm this is pretty much common

    use white vinegar instead of ACV ? I had literally ran to the store to buy her some, seeing some people say ACV instead of white vinegar, I will wait for the response. I have the GNC Anti Fungal/Bacterial shampoo for her.

    and I forgot to mention, she has had no vaccine for the past month or two (she is all up to date on everything) and her flea meds (sentinel or something like that) was on the 20th of August.

    I second the Duoxo shampoo thing.
    And the pads.

    yes , about the vinegar, the unfiltered ACV is about $5 a bottle and I know several vets that recommend the white. It's cheaper and leaves no sediment. I use ACV with the mother on their food. I has healthier benefits when used on the inside. about a tsp or sometimes just a half teaspoon, cause they really don't like it. But I like it cause it works from the inside out

    I must tell you, you really seem to be on top of everything and a really good bully mum Good job, not all peeps can keep up with this breed.

    Thanks for the props I certainly do what I can for my lil booger, these dogs are something else. I just gave her a really good bath, let her soak in her shampoo for a while and massaged her really good, gave her a benedryl as well. lets see what happens over night. I just had regular ACV from the local store, so hopefully it will help some!

    I suppose anything is possible, but I would be highly suspicious of a heat cycle causing those spots. Although body temp does rise during a cycle, I'd be more inclined to think there's other factors causing these spots. It's more hard to determine what causes the problem , rather than what type of skin issue it is
