Bald spot

So I noticed about a month ago Nismo had a bald spot on his back.
It's not dicolored, doesn't look like mange, it isn't scabbed or anything like that. It just looks like some dry skin. He doesn't scratch at it and it doesn't seem to bother or itch him.
I've tried rubbing vitamin E oil on it, didn't help...
So I'm going to make a vet appointment for him on wednesday.
Has anyone else seen this on their dogs?
Do you think it could just be a spot with no hair and nothing more?

It could be a lot of things, my dog's had something similar, though we found out she was pulling her hair out when left with one of out other dogs, according to the vets it was due to stress. -shrug- idk.

Thrall had a spot of mange after his 1st rabies shot, and thats how it looked, not raised or discolored, just a bit dry. Now he has bald spots on both of his sides, and it is not mange, the vet says it is seasonal flank alopecia (sp). I give him 2 fish oil caps per day, and I feed him TOTW pacific stream. Nothing is helping, but they don't bother him, they are not red, or itchy. My hubby thinks he is stressed by Lady, and he doesn't like her being around because she always takes his toys.

This is Demodex Mange. Just looks like a patch of dry skin. Didn't bother Combat at all never scratched at it or anything but after having it scraped found one mite. It was really easy and inexpensive to treat.

i use fish oil. but it seems to come up the same day we switched to kirkland food brand and before i was using royal canin.
unfortunately stuff got in the way and i ran out of royal canin before i could ween him off and onto the kirkland brand.

but I guess I'll find out what it really is on wednesday, I've tried everything I can think of to try and treat it so I guess taking him into the vet will be a good thing.

thank you for the responses everyone i really appreciate everyones feed back

Usually if its mange it will spread. Its probably deratitis. Try Hydocortisone cream {from Walgreens for people} Put it on the patch 3-4xs a day. It will take the redness and scaling out.

Saint has demodex and we use goodwinol ointment. It's not very expensive (about $12) and really helps! We have also found that it clears up their little scratches from playing really well and the hair in the demodex spots grows back really quickly! As he is getting older, he only gets little spots occasionally but when we got him (he was thrown from a moving truck with an embedded collar ring) he had quarter sized bald spots all over his back and one side was almost completely bare. We bathed with sulfodene shampoo 3 times a week, letting it sit for 10 mins and the goodwinol twice a day. He was growing hair back in a week and after 3 weeks you couldn't really see any of the spots anymore.

i have been having a problem with my puppy now 13 weeks, it started on his head he had a bump there when we got him not its balding and scabbing a bit, then i noticed hes getting a bald spot on his back as well not scabbing can this be do to anxiety, for he has separation issues when we leave for a while and put him in his cage? i will check with a vet at our next appointment in 2 weeks otherwise but just wondering what your opinions are.

btw off subject do you have to be a paying member to put pictures up for it wont let me, i was gonna post some but cant if anyone could send me a message about that i would appreciate it!

Thanks!
