Hair Loss on Back

My 11 month old bulldog is having some skin problems. I need some advice. The spots are round with hair loss very itchy. He has 4 sposts. I have taken him to the vet to have tests. No mange he had that before. She gave me some stray it works until I stop using it. I don't see the hair growing back. He is on Fromm dog food which is grain free . He is getting fish oil, Vit C, Zinc and E after he got mange. Any advice what else I can do.???

Kofi get's these occasionally

Hers are about the size of a pencil eraser. I don't know if they itch as she doesn't seem to be bothered by them. I was told it's a seasonal allergy. I use listerine on a cotton ball, and that clears them up.

Maybe this will work for you.

Could be allergy related or Staph

Do they get scabs? Kohl gets these sometimes but I think they are food related, and while I haven't totally figured out which protein source I think it could be lamb. What is the protein source in your Fromm dog food. How long have you been feeding that food?

Protein

The first ingredient in Fromm is Duck so I would guess that is the main protein. He has been on it for 4 months no problems until now. The spray I put on it has sulfur in it and it works but only lasts about a week and you have to go back to the vet to get more. I read someone used Vit. E I can try that. Thanks for the help.
