Patches on dog

We have a 11 month old labrador that we only took over from somebody recently. He has patches on a few places on his body wher the hair fell out and these areas are red and sometimes bloody. What causes it. He also licks it a lot.

You need to take the dog to a vet who should do a skin scraping to see if there are any mites, or what else could be causing it. The dog needs medication once the cause is diagnosed.
