Skin issue- maybe rain rot, maybe not

Citrus has a huge patch of beyond flaky skin on his right pectoral muscle (think its a pec muscle... it would be on us if we got down on all fours) I have not seen rain rot in the begining stages but he had a patch when we got him on his neck.... this looks similar. Ugh. So far the hair is still there, mostly, but he takes forever to grow hair back and it has not even rained here.... would rain rot just show up, maybe after a bath?

Maybe ringworm? That's way out there but doesn't hurt to make sure

Sousa gets occasional patches of flaky skin in that area and sometimes on his neck. Its like bad dandruff. We scrub the area with dandruff shampoo and it clears up in a day or two. I notice is seems to appear when its really hot and humid outside.

It is not in a ring pattern, it is more all over in that area. :( I will take some pictures when I go see him today.... my poor boy is going to be hairless one of these days. Is there a supplement that can make him grow hair? Not MTG because I have that, I mean one he can ingest.....
