Skunk spray allergy?
My dog was spray by a skunk two weeks ago and a couple of days after that his skin in the areas (face, fron legs and neck) that the skunk spary him start to turn red, losing hear and have crusts, but is not itchi. DO you think this could be cause by the skunk spray or it could be something more seriuos? He is a 6 years old Great Dane, what type of medicine or treatment I can give him in order to make his skin look better?

The redness and hairloss may have initially been due to skin irritation caused by the skunk spray, but I am also concerned about a secondary bacterial skin infection which may be causing continued symptoms 2 weeks later. I would recommend having him examined by your veterinarian to determine if antibiotics are needed.
Good luck,
