Seems like a fungus issue. Check with your vet just to make sure. What helped Chestnut was dog wipes with ketoconazole and chlorhexidine. I use Mal-A-Ket or Keto C. I get them from amazon. It degreases the area and kills off fungus and bacteria. I apply once a day then hair starts growing back on the 7th day or so..

I would highly recommend taking your dog fto the vet.It's also very possible she's allergic to something in her food.
