Are you saying that you have not bath your dog for 9 weeks??? You might want to use wet cloth and to wipe it around that area...

Hi!

Is the area red and flaky? If it is it might be a skin problem where the skin produces too much yeast (or something like that) making your pup feel really itchy and it'll soon stink. This problem is apparently common in shih tzus and it's the worst around the mouth area and under the ears. If this is the case, please take your pup to the vet. The vet should be able to treat it with some pills for the time being and you'll probably have to bathe it with a medicated shampoo to keep the skin problem from reoccuring. Hope this is helpful to you.
