weird patch on hind leg

hi, i have a pitbul, but his got this weird patch on his hind leg, it started out looking like a bald spot about the size of a R5 coin, but then it started looking like 3rd degree sunburn(looked like a whole lot of pimples next to each other) his been to the vet and they said its not cancer as these dogs are prone to sking cancer because his has real short hair and their sking is really sensative, after a while it sort of became open and then went away, but now after the area healed nicely it looks like its comming back again, what could it be ?

Hi Donnie

It is difficult to say what the lesion is without doing some diagnostics such as an impression smear, woodslamp, biopsy etc. The lesion could be due to trauma, bacterial, fungal etc in origin. Please revisit your and ask them to investigate.

Kind regards
