From the photos, it does look similar to what my Sting had. I have had good luck with supplementing with coconut oil 1 T. twice a day, seems to help his skin. For putting something on the elbow - I find that emu oil work very well. I apply it twice a day - before his walk and it has healed up real well. Though coconut oil can be used also. For the other sore - I would use Vetericyn. In a couple of days, it will form a scab. But if your dog is bothering the sore or scab by licking and so on, which is what my Sting did also, I redirected with his bear toy and had him lick that (it put some coconut oil on the bear to encourage him) and also used a spray like Natural Touch Chew Not for Dogs -it also has tea tree oil to help healing.
