Loosing fur around his eye

Hi guys, I am new here and wondering if anyone has seen this before?
Busker is 8 years old and a little while ago his nose became really dry and cut, we got a new fence and he kept sticking his nose under it so I put it down to him cutting it off the fence. A few weeks ago he started loosing fur around 1 eye, no where else. When I looked online it said it was common for Huskies to develop a zinc deficiency so I got food with extra vitamins in it. It doesnt seem to be helping. I am trying to get someone to get him to a vet (I have knocked my back out) but until then was just wondering if anyone else has seen this to keep my mind at ease till I get him to a vet. Any help would be appreciated.

I agree with Jenn on the coconut oil. You will need to go to a vet as soon as you can, you have to give the right amount of zinc, from what I understand too much zinc is almost as bad as not enough. It isn't the end of the world if you have to wait a week or two, but should see a vet as soon as you can. Also like Jenn said it will take a few weeks to see any changes if there is a zinc deficiency. Two thing when you go to the vet.....they need to do a skin scraping to determine ZRD and any other type of skin issues. Another issue that is similar to ZRD is dermatitis lupus (dogs can get 2 types internal and external, external will also show up around the nose getting dry and crusty/scaly and then moves on to other areas of the skin, again a skin scraping would be needed to determine.
