Thank you for reaching out to us. First of all, put a cone on him to prevent any further interaction. Continuous interaction would only exacerbate the situation. Unfortunately, an appointment with a vet for a differential diagnosis is required in this case. In the clinic, your vet is likely to carry out a skin scraping or biopsy test to first look out for any infections(parasitic, fungal, bacterial) before suspecting any other causes such as allergies. Once the cause is identified, relevant ointments or antibiotics are likely to be prescribed accordingly. Please make an appointment with a vet.

If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us!

Thank you.
