Hi Angeline, my baby Shih Tzu Twinkie (7 month now) had the same problem too.. I went to the vet and he stressed that I must not feed my baby junks (e.g Jer-high, Bow Wow treats) as she's still below 1 year. This is an important period for the puppy to develop a good immune system. Hence, I stopped all that and put her under Royal Canin Shih Tzu diet (only) with chunks of apples (not whole apple - too sweet) . Her skin was cleared from those pimple-like pustules in just 2 weeks. She's now still under vet prescribed medication (Clavamox, DMG and fish oil for canine) to clear off the internal problem for another 14 days. I hope this information will help you.

Ooh yeah, the point is.. stop giving her treats for a while and see how it goes.. Just dry pet food for the time being until those spots go off...
By the way, I'm now trying Acana for Puppies and Juniors dog food for her and she loves it. It contains natural ingredients and good for skin .. They have the same for adult dogs..
Hope this will help your little one.. Ganbatte yo!
