    I would try some Neosporin or Benedril cream on it. If it does not get better in a day or two I would take her to the vet again, he may need to do a scrape to rule out mites. Hope she gets better soon.

    Aloha,

    My female bulldog Riley has the same issues. Around 8 months, she started getting these red bumbs on her belly and thighs. We took her to the vet, and they gave her some antibiotics and told us to keep up with the benadryl. It kept appearing 2 weeks later, so we had bloodwork drawn and they tested her allergies. Turns out, she is allergic to grass, mold and dust. We ordered shots for her that will desensitize her to these allergies. They have not come in yet, but am hoping it helps with the rashes and bumbs. We bath her w/ medicated medicene 1x a week, and oatmeal shampoo 2x a week with a gentle conditioner, also we give her fish oil and vitamin e with her food in the evening. Seems to be helping a lot until we get the shots. Good Luck!!!

    did she have antibiotics after surgery? i cant stress enough and i know that i sound like a broken record but the immune system is the core to a dogs overall health,if she has had antibiotics i would give her acidophilus which will help replace the good bacteria which is often destroyed by antibiotics,also as she has just been spayed it could be her hormones dropping ,when hormones go crazy it can cause hair loss/allergy symptoms,a good quality food and immune boosters will help,omega 3 or flaxseed is a great omega source and grass grown beef/organs are very rich in omega,im fighting allergy type symptoms which according to my vet and after doing a lot of research may have been caused by her first season,so i am boosting her imune system ,i also give her a product called canine puriphy which is milk thistle and other herbs which builds up liver function,i also put a tshirt on her to prevent secondary infection due to scratching also i put calamine lotion on her,but only on her belly where she cannot lick as it can make a dog ill if its ingested,i hope you can find whats ailing your dog ,its very frustrating and time consuming ,and a lot of trial and error,im trying to get my girl sorted by using all natural products ,as drugs and steroids only weaken imune systems so really though it cures the initial illness/allergy the issues will return,i do give antihistamines twice daily ,i give them at breakfast and bedtime as i find she itches more after sleep,as they do give instant relief ,ive tried to research hostilic antihistamine but cannot find advise!!,karen

    I dunno but im thinking if its the bedding washed in detergent that there would be more symptoms than on just one leg. id think it would be where ever the bedding touched. I think id start with changing the food immediately back to whatever you were feeding before that they were doing fine on and go from there. Please keep us posted and I hope hailey gets better.

    The "inner left leg" only ... ?

    Doesn't sound like a "Food allergy/reaction" at all. Sounds like it could be bacterial, no way of knowing, but what did the VET do (other than put a inflatable collar on the dog)?
