Have your vet do a skin scrape and check for mites (mange). When my male lost hair and had open wounds from where he had bit and scratched thats what it was. At first the vet thought it was allergies.

My pom has had alot of those in the past 9 months. I just had her treated for 7-8 large redspots where the hair comes right out. The vet said hers were bacterial infections and they put her on antibiotics orally and they cleared up. But they seem to come back in a couple of months. The vet is not sure why she is getting them but said he wanted to hold off on further testing to see if they come back again. Maya is 9 1/2 years old. Hopefully meds will clear your baby up.
