Hi,
I have had delt with this issue forr many years with a Bassett, he past recently at the age of 10 but delt with this for about 5 years. I think you may see the early stages of Solar dermatitis witch is sometimes called Collie Nose. It is esentially a loss of pigment an reaction of that loss to solar rays. My boy had lesions on his nose that would get very raw and scabbed over in summer and settle to a tender pink in the winter. It is dificult to treat asa type of sunblock would help but he used to lick it off in mere seconds. shields were rubbed off and he just didn't like a hat. One method of dealing with this is to tatoo the nose black to protect it. I found a=out about this too late. If you e-mail me I can show you some photo's of what this looks like. I wish I would have caught this early as it took a couple summers to become very raw.

Good luck, Lyle
