That doesn't look good!  Have you changed her food or added anything?  Has she come into contact with anything outside? Gone hiking or anything?  Isn't there some plant that can cause serious skin reactions and I can't remember what it is! Check for insect bites?
You have a canine dermatologist within travel distance? See you are in NJ.  How far is Cornell from you?  I think I would seek a Soecialist's opinion.
Gish, good luck and please update!

Looks like hotspots or yeast infections to me
I would use african black soap for baths and shea butter after
my dog had something that looks similar and its cleared right up
