My dog has a huge, stinky, wet area under her ear and going down her neck! I heard her scratching all night. The vet said it sounded like a hotspot and she should be seen. What the heck is a hotspot and how did she get it?

I have a 4-year-old Mini Australian Shepherd. He has what the vet has called an allergy, and he continues to have problems scratching at his ears, shaking his head and "yawning" as if to clear his ears. He was on Benadryl tablets 2 times a day and a year ago was switched to Chlorophenarimine two times a day… I have not noticed any difference in reaction to foods, and he is a picky eater. Any ideas?
