This also could be a case of Mycosis (Mushrooms)(sometimes mistaken for ringworm))
The cutaneous lesion can be located or widespread and may be slightly and occasionally intense.
In general, the lesions show as circular areas of hair loss (alopecia) and can be found anywhere on the body being irregular or diffused, with
variable degrees of desquamation (peeling or scabby raised areas of skin). The remaining hair can seem short, brittle or broken.
Lesions are easier to notice when they are on the nose of the dog and may seem raised a little.
It is also quite often to see these types of lesions in older dogs and even in long haired cats.
I would recommend to you to take him to the vets where they will perform aultraviolet light diagnostic, they will probably also do a scrape of the
skin in order to carry out a histologic exam before recommending a treatment which normally clears things up within a month.
Hope this helps?
