Ouch! That does not look like a hot spot to me but more an open wound.

I would take her to the vet on this one.

It reminds me of Hepesvirus | Herpesvirus in Dogs | Information on Canine Herpes Infection, you better check her with vet as soon as you can.

that is not a hot spot. That is an open wound.

It could be from a splinter or a small puncture that got infected.

please seek a vet's assistance.
