It's possible it's the food. Food is the easiest thing to change to see if that's the issue. Try grain free and fish based for a month or two and see if it helps. In the meantime a little organic coconut oil as a topical will probably help as well. Fish oil and coconut oil rotated out as a supplement will also help with dry skin.

Or it could be Staphylococcal dermatitis or even an allergic reaction to insect bites. There is also Staphylococcal hypersensitivity (allergy) to the normal amount of Staph present on the skin. Staphylococcal dermatitis can develop as a result of food allergies.

When in doubt, have the vet take a look. Your vet would do a skin scrape and culture to determine if/which staph if it won't clear it up quickly with ointment and dietary oil(s).

i think the other suggestions are more likely. but...
there is a condition known as "stud tail". clinically called supracaudal hyperplasia. it's caused by an overactive gland at the base of the tail. most common in unaltered males but possible in any dog.
my boy started having very similar symptoms around 1.5yo... bald spots. crusty patches. inflammation. black heads. scaly and flaky skin.
basically the excretions cause blockage of the hair follicles on the tail. leading to growth of bacteria and pyoderma.
IF this is what your dog has, you can start by gently exfoliating the tail with a bristle brush. washing with antibacterial soap (real medicated stuff, not like soft soap). let it dry then apply coco nut oil. maybe 2 times per week.
my boy recovered in about 5 weeks. after that i made sure to brush his tail and it never came back. he is 9 years old now. he has 2 small bald spots. but barely noticeable.
