Weird skin condition?

Hello everyone, new here to the forum, we are on vacation in OBX and I noticed one of our labs licking his rear leg for about 10 minutes. He has always has dry patches on his limbs like Psoriasis, he is 7 and we have had him 2 years now but I've never noticed the weird flap of skin he was licking at today. Does this look like some sort of cyst or maybe a weird worm burrowing itself? I pulled at it lightly with a Leatherman but he didn't flinch at all.

It looks like a little cyst of some sort. I would get him on in to the vet to be taken off and maybe send off for testing.

Time for the Vet to become involved. Pulling at it with your Leatherman will not help, may harm, and certainly will provide no diagnosis.
