Hi, I posted this in another forum ,but I think this might be the better forum for my question..... I just recently noticed my dachshund has been scratching and licking a lot. I noticed his stomach looks very dry and red. I'm not sure what to do. I saw some at home remedies and just wanted to see if anyone else has had this issue. I will attach a picture of his stomach.

I have seen some dogs with mange and this looks like some of the areas on those dogs. From what I know, and it is not much about mange, it is caused by mites and has to be treated by a veterinarian with special shampoo and antibiotics.

Signs and Symptoms of Mange in Dogs
Redness, rash, and itching. Hair loss. Sores and lesions. Scabby, crusty or scaly skin.

Good luck, I hope your dog recovers soon.
