Ouch! Has he seen a vet?

It looks a bit like yeast to me or a nasty nasty skin infection. Maybe even mange or another parasite, or allergies.

Honestly could be anything the vet will be able to help better than we can.

I know but it's just that right now were going through tough economic times so we can't take him to a vet at the moment. Thats why I was hoping that maybe one of you guys could help
It appears to be moist so I took a tissue and gently rubbed it against his skin to remove the moist off.

He absolutely needs to be seen. The treatment could be very different depending on what it is.

It is very unlikely to just go away. You'll want to get ahead of it before it goes systemic or causes compounded issues which will be more complicated to treat and more expensive as well.

I agree, he needs to be seen by a vet. Looks like a nasty fungal infection to me. If untreated, it could lead to cellulitis which is very costly and complicated to treat.

I agree with the others, you don't want it to spread or get worse! The last thing you want is to have to remove a limb from letting it stay like that. Poor guy! I wouldn't touch it either.
