Unhappy pug with some type of bite or rash?

We have a pug who is a year old who has recently developed what looks like mosquito bites on her front left leg, she also has a large mark on the inside of her right leg and a mark behind her left ear. She seems to be itching like crazy. We took her to the vet who gave us pills for dermatitus but they said they weren't sure what it was either! Does anyone know? She's scratched some of the spots to the point that they are bleeding and the medication the vet gave us does seem to be helping.

attach a picture

Can you attach a picture?Maybe someone on the board has encountered a similar problem

If your vet who has seen it doesn't know, how can we who haven't seen it know?

But to me it sounds like some type of bite or allergy.

I would see another vet.

Is she scratching or biting the area? maybe you should get one of those cone collars to prevent your dog from biting the sores to allow them some time to heal (since the medication seems to be helping).
