4-Month Old Rhodesian with Unknown Skin Issue

Hello!
Ruby - Our wonderful 4-month old Ridgeback is happy as a clam! Her food is Orijen - Regional Red.

About 2 week ago she started developing these areas that are almost psoriasis like...She scratches occasionally but nothing crazy. These spots are all over but mostly on leg areas.

Went to vet and she was helpful, but couldn't diagnose definitively. She put her on a 2 week antibiotic.

Any thoughts would be appreciated

Might be this skin autoimmune disorder pemphigus http://m.petmd.com/dog/conditions/skin/c_dg_pemphigus
I've seen dogs with it. Look up waffles_n_lola on Instagram. She has one of the 4 types, pemphigus foliaceus.

Easiest way to rule that disease out (unlikely due to weird and random distribution) is a biopsy, something any vet can do in an office call with a bit of lidocaine and a biopsy punch. Looks more to me like a superficial pyoderma (Staph infection) with the secondary dry and flaky skin associated with many of them... but that is also impossible to diagnose from a photograph. See your vet, or better yet, your vet-recommended dermatologist for the fastest, most accurate answer.
