Hi. I like the povidone iodine suggestion. I will add that to my repertoire of skin treatments. My last dog had very bad skin due to allergies, yeast. A few things I did: I used diluted peroxide half and half with distilled water in a spray bottle for spot, touch ups. When I bathed him, I used one of two shampoo solutions. The first is chlorhexidine 4% + PS shampoo. I applied to the inflamed areas. Leave on for five minutes. I also used a chlorhexidine solution, 2% chlorhexidine gluconate, which needs to be premixed. I used the second one in a mix in a spray bottle for touch ups. These shampoos work very well for any skin stuff. They are strong. Not sure if they would be ok on puppies, but you could always do a spot check. Or contact a pet pharmacy. I also used an allergy suit. Those things are a lifesaver. They BREAK the cycle of itch. And the skin clears up fastest this way.
Like the other reader suggested it looks like fungal. But a vet who does a scraping would be best. If it is fungal, maybe momma dog has it also? Wouldn’t be a bad idea to get her checked. Also maybe check the food. Maybe your bag dog food could have the aflatoxin, mold in it? Check the bag date, smell/check the food. Some thoughts. Good luck.
It’s heartwrenching to see little pups go thru stuff so early.
