Vetricin works wonderful on hotspots. Apply twice a day until it starts to dry up and look more healed, then once a day. If it doesn't start to heal and look better within about three to four days you will need to go to the vet because it may be something else.

That doesn't sound like a hot spot to me. They tend to be moist sores. Yours almost sounds like maybe dry skin. For that I use coconut oil directly on the dry patch, as well as orally, or give fish oil.

I don't think its anything major, but a trip to the vet would be good.....

If its dry itchy skin, an omega 3 supplement added to his food might help. Our dog tends to have dry itchy skin, and I know it helps her. If its more then that, it might required a trip to the Vets, as you don't want to just let him suffer. You might contact your local shelter, to see what might be available in the way of subsidized Vet care. The local shelter in this area does conduct clinics for owners to bring their pets to, that might otherwise not have access to Vet care for them.
