Post help, My russian campbell dwarf's skin condition

Hi, Zuki, my russian campbell dwarf has a skin condition. I don't know what it is, and how to cure it. It looks like dandruff, he's missing hair and it is scaly. also he has little cuts, I think from scratching. He seems itchy sometimes. He has fur missing on his side and on his back he has that dandruff scaly thing, and has cuts at the base of his tail. He still eats and drinks and walks around. He is a year and a half old.



Here's some photos of him that I took:

Zuki doesn't look at all well. Can you get him to a vet? It might be Cushing's disease, but whatever it is he would benefit from a proper diagnosis and whatever care can be given to ease his condition.

Hope you can get him comfortable.

Hello,

He may have a mite infection which a spot on treatment of ivermectin would help However, he looks very uncomfortable and inflammed so needs a proper vet diagnosis and they may do an injectable ivermectin.

Little guy needs to get to a vet, this will not clear up on its own
