Copy this, it's a fungal infection.
You use an antifungal on the area, do NOT scrub at it or you'll spread the spores. New fur regrowth happens within a week but you keep treating for 4 weeks total to get rid of it all. We used a 2% miconazole cream from Walgreens that was $8, the vet's tube (the same 2% solution) was $21.
Good luck, it is catching to humans so wear gloves.
