Might have her checked for ringworm or mange. Could also just be a rub spot.

It might be a hot spot from feeding to high of a protein feed ?

If the dog has spots in the same place on both legs and they are itchy it could be a hormonal problem (possibly Cushing's Disease) or seasonal allergies. It could also be either ringworm or a feed problem. You can treat ringworm with any lotion, cream or shampoo used for ringworm, athlete's food or jock itch. They all have the ingredients to get rid of it. The feed problem you can take care of by feeding a lower protein feed. If she shows signs of being very hungry and thirsty, panting and urinating a lot more than usual you should take her to the vet for a blood test for Cushing's.
