Hello:

The presence of rash in your pet can have many causes, since dermatological problems have different origins: allergies, fungi, bacteria, external agents, external parasites, hormonal or autoimmune diseases, etc.

It is essential to go to a veterinarian to perform some simple and low-cost diagnostic tests that rule out the most common causes. The test process should be as following:

- External deworming.
- Trichogram.
- Skin scraping in the area of injury.
- Woods lamp.
- Blood test.
- Allergy tests.

We recommend you visit the veterinarian to find out what is causing the peeling. Depending on the cause, the treatment will be different.

All the best,
