My 3 year old chihuahua has suddenly developed small black spots. What are they?

We're going to the vet tomorrow, but I'd love any information on what could be causing this tonight. I noticed a week or so ago that she had what looked like little bug bites on her left side that were bleeding. I figured she had scratched them open. So then a few days later I saw that they were scabbed and dried over, and I figured things were working themselves out. But in the last 24-48 hours, she's developed black spots in their place- they sort of look like moles? And they've spread from just her left side to a few on her back (under her fur, where they can barely be seen). What is this? And how much is it going to cost me to fix it? She's had some skin problems in the past (a case of mange about a year ago that got really bad due to a lazy vet who didn't diagnose her properly, and that cost me a bundle).
