hi there. i'm sorry aussie isn't doing well it sounds like he should see a vet. tell your dad that 'wait and see' won't work because it won't kill him, he's just uncomfortable i'm sure. try to blackmail him lol cry or something, it worked for me, on with the waterworks and progress here we go!

Do you see any white flaking? You said it's dry. It could be mites (don't worry my vet told me we cannot get the kind I am talking about). I had a bun that had them and they just kept getting worse. Finally I showed the vet. With a few inexpensive shots given a week apart she was fine in no time.
It was such an easy fix and my vet charged very little for the shots.
I may only be shedding but it's better to be safe than sorry.
Has he ever had a check up? Maybe you can talk your dad into by saying he should get checked over once in a while anyway?
