If you email me the pictures I will shrink them and post. [email protected]

It could be a staph infection, especially if she gets more sores. Or, possibly you used a different brand of aspen shavings. From what I have noticed over the years, aspen is more likely to cause allergies than kiln dried pine. Did you give her a bath after you took her off the aspen. If not, it would be a good idea to get all the aspen dust and residue off her and see if it helps.
