Default 10 week old puppy has allergies?

Hello, I think my ten week old puppy has allergies the insides of her ears are a rosey color pink,her paws are pinkish red she also has afew bug bites on her belly but they seem to be going away now.But she also has flees and ticks that im haveing are hard time getting rid of due to the fact that I have not found and flee and tick stuff yet that I can put on her due to her age(ive been useing regular dawn dish soap).After she has a bathe she gets better for a day or two then her "allergies" come back.She eats call of the wild puppy food and has been dewormed and is up to date on her shots for her age.

There are plenty of products that are safe to use after 8 weeks of age:

Just remember, if your puppy has fleas, so does your house, so unless you treat it, she'll continue to get reinfested. Your pup could have an allergy to fleas, causing the skin issue. Get the fleas under control. If the redness persists, then consider the food as a possible problem.

Gypsiemouse is correct, I think all flea stuff can be used after 8 weeks. (Well the puppy stuff of course). You will also need to treat your home for the infestation.

As for the "allergies", what's the first ingredient on the bag of food? Maybe try to steer clear of that product. Ex. If chicken is first try a different protein based food. My cousin has a husky/Shepard mix and her allergies are so bad he can only feed her the cheap food. And when I say cheap it's like 10-20$ for a 50 lb bag. You might want to consider a raw diet if these issues persist!

Your vet will carry many flea and tick products that can be used on your puppy. It sounds like a flea allergy and this should clear it up. Also the dawn dish soap can be hard on their skin and that could be cause a rash as well.

Contact your vet, they will be able to help you with a flea & tick meds for your pups age. You also need to treat your house otherwise you will never be flea free. I'm going to knock on wood that we haven't had a real issue with fleas. We nipped the fleas Pheona came with in the butt before our house became infested with them. Not something I want to have in my place.
