I am not able to assess that. I was looking at where the point of hock was in relation to the butt. So my vet says he leg is str...

You might pick out a "test spot" and try some over the counter hydrocortisone cream on it for a few days to see if it is immunologically related. Cortisone will shut it down if it is. Sweat/rubbing exacerbates those reactions, I deal with issues all the time where backpack/straps rub.
