hi! We just rescued our sweet Betti. I bathed her in the same soap the lady before did and within an hour a patch popped up. Figured it was a dry patch, I put aquaphor on it and it made it worse and bubble almost. Lady told me hydrogen perxiode, which worked and heeled the first spot. Then two days later out of know where she has another blister spot on her neck above her shoulder.. And then another smaller less alarming spot on her chest. When I got home from Work she had a welt on her neck (looks like from acessive itching) Rushed her to the vet because someone said it could be ringworm. It didn’t glow under the black light and she doesn’t think it is, more of an allergic reaction possibly. She scraped her for a fungus culture and said it take up to three weeks to get back. Cost me and arm and leg! She’s on clavamox and prednisone. I’m keep her in a large crate for three days to keep her away from the kids and dog. PLESAE help. I’m freaking out think about bleaching everything. The neck was hard to get a picture of without touching her. The blisters fell off and are now red spots

It does look like it could be ringworm. I would continue to keep your baby confined until your vet can confirm.

It's sort of hard to tell, can you get a better picture?
