Bald spots

my dog has developed little round bald spots on her stomach and is now spreading to the rest of her body. A friend told me that it was hot spots, but what she has on her stomach is not red, and her hair seems to come out in scabs. Anyway even though i didn't think it was hot spots i still rubbed the medicine on her stomach and its not helping. She doesn't act sick or has any other symptoms she just keeps loosing hair.

Any help what so ever would be appreciated. Thank you very much.

i think you should definately head to a vet very soon.

It could be a flea allergy or maybe a type of mange?
hope your pooch is okay.

I'm wondering if it's ringworm. If it is, this is super-contageous, even for humans. I'd get her in to the vet for an evaluation asap...
keep us posted!
