Hello and thank you for using Just Answer today to ask about Lana.   My name is***** and I will do my best to help.   Thanks for the pictures.  Please give me a moment to look at these.   How long have the spots been there?

Are these spots itchy?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Some appeared recently, first one on the nose about 2-3 weeks ago, she is scratching just her body and I she has got dandruff
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I haven’t washed her

Thanks for that information.  Are you using any flea products on her?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I don’t want to switch to the call. I paid already £30 for this consultation and I cannot afford another payment

I can't make calls; I can only chat here.

I used once, a week ago

What was that?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
I don’t remember the brand to be honest

These spots could be infections.  Another possibility is skin mites.   Mites are too small to see without a microscope.

Some flea products get mites but most do not.

She had already some spots before I used flea product on her
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
they are only on her face

Mites can start on the face of puppies.

These may not be serious and may go away on their own.  You can try applying a little antibiotic ointment from a chemist on these.   If the get worse, I would have a veterinarian check for mites.
