I would get a vet's opinion. They have some pretty cheap medication you can put on the hot spots(our lab got them). The medication has something harmless in it that dissuades the dog from licking the area, as well.

I'm sure there are some homemade solutions, but ideally, hot spots should get checked out by a vet. As they could be a sign of a skin infection or condition.

Hot spots are from overly licking or chewing. This is most likely due to allergies. It's common. You can also get medicated wipes to apply to the affected areas in order to block infections.

Benadryl is often given to curb itchiness which will in turn keep them from chewing, rubbing, scratching, licking, etc..

Skin allergies are common in the bulldog breeds. Fish oil capsules can reduce the problem. if you are feeding the dog food with grain in it that can increase the problem. Grains and yeast can be turned into sugar which can cause the dogs reaction. I have had the same problem for years with my bulldogs. Switched to grain free/ half raw diet. I could not justify pumping my dog with steroids and Benadryl all the time.
