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,
