i think so. especially if she is licking constantly. here is something that might help. Ways to Control Yeast / Fungus Overgrowth
Treatment: External Problems

Bathe: Use a sulfur-based or medicated shampoo for fungus, one with Ketoconazole – KetoChlor Shampoo by VirBac – have your vet order it for you.

Then use a Baking Soda rinse after shampooing, it will be quite helpful with the overall itchiness, skin problems and inflammation.

BAKING SODA RINSE RECIPE
Mix two (2) teaspoons of BAKING SODA per gallon of warm water; make sure to mix it so it absolutely dissolves – poor over pet, do not rinse off.

After showering and animal is dry: Prepare a 2 % solution of Oxy-Drops (Mix 1 teaspoon with 1 cup (8ozs.) of distilled water). Use this to spray or wipe skin, ears, and feet with to prevent secondary bacterial infection. (order below). Some people report wiping areas with Listerine stops itching.
