Hi Karen,
When my last collie had a hot spot, we put him in cotton boxer shorts
backwards and pulled his tail through the fly.  It was the only time he got
to wear the pants in this house!  I have a picture of him somewhere and he
did look ridiculous, but it worked.

Solid Gold also makes an Animal Skin Cream, for "eczema, hot spots, dog
biting himself, etc." I also add Sea Meal to Grace's food, which is
wonderful.
Good luck,
DeDe
