Q. Some sort of dripping infection sack on vagina or butt of my Pit Bull. She licks it constantly.

A. This should be checked over by your vet as soon as possible in case she has an infection of the uterus (a pyometra) which can be serious especially if untreated. This usually occurs within 2 months of a season. You are likely to also notice excessive drinking and possibly lethargy too.
