Rebeccavet I have been looking at pictures on computer. and it really looks like mites or mange what is best treament for this
The only way to diagnose mange is by scraping the skin, and looking for the microscopic mites under a microscope. There are three types of mange, caused by three different mites.You can treat Chyletiella mites, and scabies mites with monthly applications of Revolution topically. It is a prescription flea and tick treatment that requires a prescription.Demodex mites are another matter, and can require months of treatment. The usually treatment now is daily tiny doses of Ivermectin. So if this is mange / mites, a vet visit will be required for both diagnosis, and treatment.Let me know what else I can answer.
