Please help I want to get rid of this for him as fast as possible
Ask the vet to do a skin scraping. That way they will be able to microscopically see what is going on. There are two types of mange and that can be decided by the scraping. If it is sarcoptic they will have you treat him with a Lym dip but it will take a few dips to clear it up. The other kind of mange that is very common in puppies is demodex. That is caused by a flare up of mites that he already has on his skin. That can be treated with oral meds such as ivormectin or interceptor or with a dip. This will also take a while to clear up depending on severity and method of treatment.
