|That does sound flea-ish. For some dogs all it takes is one bite to have a reaction. So you may not have an infestation. She may have been bit by one flea out in the yard, and is reacting to that. As long as this hot spot heals and she doesn't get any more, I wouldn't worry too much about it.
I've seen dogs with anal gland troubles chew hotspots there as well, but usually only if they can't twist far enough around to chew the base of their tail. Obviously I don't know how flexible she is. Anal gland irritation can follow a diet change. If her poop has all been super small, for instance, she may not be expressing them naturally. A little fiber would fix that, if it is the issue.
