Her skin looks extremely dry, and not just in that spot, which points to nutritional deficiency. Do you see the flakes of skin all over? What are you feeding her?

Skin fungus (dermatophyte) can look just about like anything... however most of the time there are some signs of focal infection and hair loss, or a raised, ulcerative 'carrion'. This looks more like a seborrhea condition, or dry skin. To diagnose a fungus, one usually either needs to do some testing (Dermatophyte PCR tests are the fastest and easiest, but culturing works, too... just takes 2-3 weeks... and a Wood's Lamp survey rarely works in a dog). Just looking at the skin and saying its a fungus is NOT a very professional way of diagnosing something, and is very likely to be incorrect. A small skin biopsy is the fastest way to get an actual diagnosis that will include all possibilities. Could be a mild superficial pyoderma (skin infection), a zinc deficiency (less likely) or some secondary dermatitis to an allergy. Good luck.

Poor baby, her skin looks so incredibly dry! It looks like it's just flaking off

What brand of food do you feed her? Where does she sleep?

From the looks of it the dog food is a decent one, but she might do better on one with a different type of protein. Maybe try the fish or lamb formula. One warning about fish based dog food, it sometimes causes dog's to take on a fishy smell.

Organic, cold pressed, virgin, coconut oil, you can buy it at the grocery store, may help if he has dry skin, it can be used both topically and orally. Here's an article on it, I'd discount most of the claims, but research does shoe it helps with dry skin. https://www.sitstay.com/blogs/good-d...ultimate-guide

I'd get a second opinion on that being a fungi infection.
