Weird pustule near dog's mouth/eye area
My dog is a 3 year old female Maltese. I was petting her this morning around the eye/ear/mouth area (she's 3lbs, her head is so small that all of these things are so close together) and felt a small hard-ish bump. Upon inspecting the area, I saw what looks like 2 tiny pustules. One of them had what I initially thought wasn't a tiiiiiny dark hair coming out of it but after a quick google search I've scared myself half to death and think it could be a tick. There are 2 bumps, one just above the other. They're slightly larger than the size of a pinprick and essentially look like 2 little whiteheads. Both are very slightly raised just like a whitehead. The top one has what looks like a tiiiiiny pinprick hole in it. The "dark hair" that I noticed came out just by touching the little spot, no pulling or anything. Just below the spots the skin is a little dry. Any thoughts on what this could be?
