|Hello, I have the same thing - head, neck, belly, back, etc. Every month it's been getting worse. The vet said I don't have fleas or mange - I'm a healthy pup! My mommy did some research and found that 95 percent of Fawn and Blue Chis get something called "color mutant alopecia" or "color dilution alopecia." Here's a site with more info: http://www.dermvet.com/colordilutionalopecia.htm
They say that their is no cure, but my mommy keeps trying. She's been trying to boost my fatty amino acids by giving me a double dose of fish oil every day and boy do I love it! It tastes really good and it makes my skin and coat really soft. Also, I think I might even be getting some of my hair back on my head! (my back though? no luck).
Anyways, I hope all of this information helps you. As long as your not itchy and your comfortable, balding is okay - it just makes you unique!
