Can you upload a photo(s) to our conversation of the top of your dog's head? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see the icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/ How old is your dog, please? You're likely to be seeing a focal pyoderma (bacterial skin infection - usually caused by Staphylococcus) but I can be more accurate if I can see what you're seeing.
