Sores and hair loss on the face

My puppy had a little scab above her eye that started about two weeks ago, it has now grown about 2 inches wide with little tiny scabs and hair loss. Anyone else's dogs go through this and what was it?

Have you had it checked out by a vet yet?

You'll need to go to the vet to know for sure, but it sounds like it could be demodex (red mange). That one isn't contagious, and its brought on by stress and a low immune system.

The other mange is sarcoptic mange, and it is highly contagious to you and other dogs. Only a vet can tell you for sure with a skin scraping which one, if either that it might be.
