Skin Issue

So, my OTTB has an occasional case of "cannon crud" that I have learned how to manage.

Now he has lost some hair in an odd spot: when you lift his tail, as we know, there is no hair in the area between his two "cheeks", but now that are of "no hair" has widened. When his tail is in normal position you can see some of the bald area on each side. It is definitely not a rub. I have been bathing him with some head and shoulders and rinsing and drying him well. I tried MTG which didnt irritate, but hasnt fixed it either. Now I am just thinking I should leave it along, keep the area dry, and see what happens.

Has anyone else had hair loss in this area?

Could it be he is shedding out and the new hair is too fine to be seen or just not in yet?

Honestly it looks like he has diaper rash! I have been using head and shoulders on the area and drying it well. I see some fine hairs coming in, so I think its getting better.
