Can anyone identify what this is? Remy has a bald spot on his chin.. has had it two days. We are planning to take him to the vet tomorrow/tues but wanted to know if anyone has seen anything like this before. It doesn't seem to be spreading and it's only in that area. He does play rough with other dogs and is having allergies (like everyone) to the cedar around here... we are giving him Benadryl though. Sorry the images are big just wanted to give you guys a clear picture. The spot is small and has two bumps on it... it has some red spots like a scratch or some light scabbing? Not sure. He doesn't seem to be bothered by it and isn't scratching at it. Thanks so much!

Could be Ringworm

I can almost see a little ridge-y looking ring in the picture, but it could just be a scrape from playing rough? Esp. if its not itchy. Vet will know.

Forgot to update that we took him to the vet and its... Yep... Demodex mange. he said that's actually better than ringworm. Guess because of his parvo his immune system is still weak and he reacted badly. Fun! Luckily the vet stated that he should not loose any more hair since he has started his meds and we caught it early!
