Hi all and what a great bunch of people we have here
I'm the proud parent of Elsa she's 5 going on 6
So Elsa experiences these random sort of spots ...they start as a small patch of white dead skin this then drops with her fur to leave a reddish pink patch ...I use malaseb shampoo and it goes away
But before you know it a week or month later another one appears...
Anyone got any clue to what these are...

I'm dealing w/this issue on my female right now... it could be caused by environmental allergies, an infection, and/or a food allergy. Since you've tried to keep a handle on it, and it keeps coming back I would suggest a skin scrape to rule out a bacterial infection.

Looks like allergies, what do you feed?

She might have Atopic dermatitis(environmental allergies) and food allergies possibly.

Especially with pollen out, environmental allergies flare up.

Bath her a couple times a week with hypoallergenic shampoo or medicated shampoo and boost her immune system thru food and supplements(bovine Colostrum is great supplements for environmental allergies). And omega 3.

The one photo looks like it could be staph…. I’d have the vet test/scape to confirm
