Does he lie on his back and squiggle/scratch his own back on the patio or hard surfaces. Tonka has a pretty big spot on her head from doing this.

I struggled w/ my dog's allergies starting from when he was a puppy. A vet prescribed Vetricyn, it's a spray. That worked pretty well, combined w/
Benedryl, a vet also suggested that. You can get the spray on Amazon--much much cheaper. I'm making an assumption that it's allergies.
I wish you luck.

Yes he is doing that when we go outside for walks especially on grass because he is happy he is doing that everyday

Tonka's spot has gotten much bigger. The Vet. can give him a shot that does not affect his immune system. it is called Cytopoint injection. It doesn't stop him from being allergic. It just stops him from feeling itchy. If he scratches more you can do that. Fish oil seems to be helping Tonka a bit. You could also try Colostrum. If he is rolling in grass I would definitely wipe him down every time you come in from a walk etc. We use a wet cloth and wipe down their whole bodies, especially focusing inbetween toe pads, etc. Then we take a dry cloth and pat them down as well. You want to make sure you dry inbetween toes, armpits, and groin area. Also, probiotics help too.

They need more baths during allergy season as well. Use a really good shampoo for dogs like Zymox and dont make the water too warm. Then you also want to rinse them for about 10 min.
 
It doesn’t look good. What caused these allergies? My dog Trevor is allergic to pollen and used to cause skin irritation for which I used dexamethasone, suggested by his vet, it helped reduce the redness and inflammation. I think in your case, it’s better to get in touch with a vet ‘cause if you used the wrong medication on your dog’s allergies that might cause further irritation. You should try to at least get on a call with your vet if you already have one. If you don’t have one, try searching online, just for a consultation, it can even be telephonic. I am familiar with these 2 websites - greatvet, veterinarians, (I found a vet clinic for my dog on greatvet). Just enter your zip code to start the search.

Hope that helps!
