Newfoundlands are pron to issues of this sort. There are several things you can do. 1. Change your dog food to a high-quality grain free dog food. 2. Rise your dog after she goes to the lake as duck-itch could be your problem. 3. Use hydrocortisone cream on the area that has the sores 2-3 times a day. 4. Use Head & Shoulder's shampoo when you bathe your dog. This help with the dry skin. A vet check should be on your list as well, as dogs can get skin issues such as mange from other dogs if she comes in contact with them or gets the bacteria from the area where she swims.
