    It looks like he has small bald spots. I think these can be triggered by allergies. I don't have much experience with them but I am sure other members have.

    It's may be ringworm or it may be demodex mites. The vet will do a skin scrape to know for sure. How old is he?

    Could be a number of things, likely a dermatitis or ringworm. Possibly mange but hopefully not.

    Is it itchy? Usually allergies or a skin infection is itchy. If it's not itchy, it might be demodex (puppy mange) and if you catch it early, it's not so hard to get rid of. Ruckus got a couple spots like that and it turned out to be puppy mange. Peroxide shampoo and Goodwinol helped clear it up and the fur grew back quicker than I thought it would. Definitely head to the vet for a skin scraping.

    could be many things, but I'm thinking staph infection. Let us know what the vet has to say

    any updates on this skin infection?? Lola has a similar bald spot but it actually started out with some dry crusting and flaking of the top layer of skin, which was then red for a few days, and ended up looking exactly like this bald spot!

    We've had bald spots before with food allergies. But several other spots are following suit on her belly. (I have pics of all stages). Emailed the vet but no response yet.

    Did it start off much redder of a pinkish color?? I've been going thru this with mine, and vet says actually hot spots.. Have a spray and got a med that was free at local pharmacy..

    Lola's does start out flaky then red red underneath for a few days. Then just plain bald with a dark hue. All dry tho. I thought hot spots were moist
