are you referring to pyoderma, which is a skin condition, or pyometra, which is an infection of the uterus?

here’s some information on both:

pyometra can be fatal if not handled quickly.  if you think your bitch has any sort of infection, please get her to a vet ASAP.  the only preventative for pyometra is spaying…and unless you’re showing your dog in the Conformation ring or in some sort of sport, then doing all the required health testing appropriate for her breed, she should be spayed anyway.
