    Have the anal glands been checked? Does she have a tail pocket or not?

    OUCH!!! Most certainly NOT anal gland issues. You can give a benedryl for the itching, I give one to Vegas for his allergies and his itching. I would have that check out by the vet. Maybe put some Neosporin or some antibiotic cream on it until you can get there. But the pill will help with the itch.

    Ohh.....definitely a trip to the vet on that one! Could be she had a pretty severe reaction to the flea bites. Might sound weird but my daughter swells up and itches for weeks after a flea gets her. I would put some antibiotic cream on that and get her to the vet. Not sure what is safe to put on it for a dog. I use an antihistamine cream on my daughter that the pediatrician gave us.

    @GatorRay, I do the same as your daughter, for weeks I will still have a bump and itch, luckily I have not dealt with fleas for years. I think giving an internal antihistamine like benedryl would be better because if it was a cream even the antibiotic cream I know Vegas would rub it off.

    It stinks doesn't it? When she was younger, she would not stop scratching them for anything and they would get pretty nasty. We haven't had fleas on the dogs or in the house, but they had them on their playground at school. They had to spray that playground THREE TIMES for them to be gone! But kudos to the school for going through that process and keeping the kids out of certain areas until they were gone.

    My old border collie Shep was allergic to flea bites, made a bad mess just like that
    always resulted in a trip to the vet for a weeks course of antibiotics and steroid injection.
    I tried a lot of self help type remedies but the Vets trip was all that worked.

    Poor Famous it will be very irritating and sore

    That is not the anal glad I agree, I am concerned that it is a flea bite that has become infected. Any break in the skin can cause an opening for infection. From the pictures it's hard to tell if it is tense or swollen. If it progresses you will have a bad case of cellulitus. Benadryl orally will help the reaction the dose is based on your Bullies wt, it will not treat infection. I think the vet might be needed if it's not improved by Monday.

    I 100% agree with @Terry, and the benadryl is based on wt. Vegas weighs 63 and can actually take two, our vet said one for each 25 lbs. but I only give him one and it seems to help enough it is ONLY for the itching not infection. I think a vet visit is in order so that it does not get further infected IF it is infected.
