Will Hair Grow Back on Bald Spots?

i need to know! im getting worried and i'm the only one who is worried..no one will believe that it is something serious!! i think it is an infection or the ringworm :(
my Koa is about 6 or 7 weeks and he is developing small bald areas around his ears and face

It sounds like it could be mange, which needs to be treated or could get a lot worse. It might not be, but I'd go to the vet.

Like said before it doe sound like mange which can become extremely serious if left untreated, also depending on the type. I suggest you take Koa to the vet for a skin swab so they can see if there are any yucky mites there. If not then it may be a ringworm which also need vet treatment. Either way take him to the vet.

as long as you treat it now the bald spots around his face will grow back.. main causes of hair loss is allergic reactions, hot spots, or even a hormonal imbalance..just take him to to the vet and have him checked out..if caught early later in life you will never be able to tell he had a hair loss
