Is she getting bitten by anyone? I ask because sometimes other dominant dogs bite right above the tail...

What does the skin look like underneath? Is it red? Is there a scab or cut?

I don't know if it's related, but weekly baths is a little often isnt it? I was looking at some poodle websites and they say you should only be bathing every 2-3 weeks max. Reducing washing may help.
