In all honestly im not sure what is going on. but if shes continually licking and bitting at the wound and paw i would say wrap it with vet wrap or but a cone on her if you can keep her from licking it. If its not getting better in a couple of days i would bring her into the vet to make sure nothing too serious is going on.

@Lucypepper, it looks like a hot spot. I would keep it clean and dry and, if she has no medication allergies, you can apply some polysporin to the area. Make sure to cover it well (dollar store baby socks wrapped with vet wrap works well). If you see no improvement within 48 hours, it's time for a vet visit to see if there is some underlying cause (allergies or skin infection) that needs to be treated more systemically.
