Maybe with a photo we could give a better guess, but if it doesn't go away or get much worse, you should bring it up at her next vet checkup.

Can't tell without a picture. If it is folliculitis, then it would be inflammed, and sore to the touch. I'd take her to the vet to tell for sure. 'bumps' should be looked at. Mast cell tumors look like that too!

Hopefully it's something minor like a bee sting.

I always wonder what happened? People post and ask for advice, and we hear nothing after that. Irritating, and concerned. PLEASE let us have an update.

I have been seriously ill and so have not been online and so was offended to read this last post.. I asked for advice. as a very concerned dog owner. My mum took her to the vets and was told it was a histocytoma. It had already turned black so was told already dying. Thankfully has already dropped off much quicker than was expected. In humans in fatal in dogs common n happens in young dogs. Please do not judge if people do not reply as there maybe genuine reasons. Mine is very serious n feel upset thankyou
