    She is about 15 weeks old and started developing this problem around a week ago. It does not seem to be effecting her behavior or health. I have been cleaning the area and putting neosporin on it because it was cracking and bleeding.
    Can anyone help identify this and give ideas of what to do?
    Thank You[​IMG]

    It looks like a bacterial infection. I would try to treat with amoxiccillin.
