Bald spot near the tail. The dog has been aggresively biting the area/ I have been spraying hot spot medicine in the area for awhile. I noticed from an angle in the sun under the hair it looks really red and irritated. I gave her a bath with flea and tick shampoo and gave her flea and tick medicine. I don't see any evidence of fleas. What else can I do and I wonder what is causing it?

The problem with fleas...is that it could have been one flea that bit and caused an allergic reaction. It's called flea allergy dermatitis. Can you put a cone on her so she does not lick and chew on that spot? I've always had good luck with Gold Bond Medicated Powder for those kind of things...it helps to dry the spot and soothe the itch. If it does not get better soon...you may have to take her to the vet.
