Based on very little info you gave, sounds like rain rot. To my knowledge it is a fungus. Causes spotty hair loss.

If it is not fleas I will give ivomec or the generic version of zimecterin (1.87% ivermectin)...there are 2 or 3 generic versions...I usually by iverchoice on account it is always on sale at TSC... I give slightly more than quarter inch and a week later another small dose...this will kill ear mites and mange mites and will break the cycle which is hard to do with mange mite meds...

Sounds like your dogs are having a mange mite problem but don’t know for sure...

I’d just take one of them to your vet to diagnose then treat the rest. Sounds like you might might spend just as much money and time guessing.

Sounds a little odd Considering they’re  on clean concrete.

With clean concrete the dogs usually stay healthy...

I've had two dogs like that....One of my kids bathed the dog with horse shampoo that had iodine in it and he's skin cleared up and hair grew back. (The iodine kills the fungus that causes rain rot on horses.) One dog has to bath with it regularly and the other was a one time thing. A lot of skin conditions are linked to allergies, such as food, fleas, grass, ect.

A good question...I thought about it and let it go...the high dollar dog food tends to be the worst

Ive had skin and coat issues with the retriever brands from TSC, it never effected all my dogs just a few of them and would reoccur when I swapped back before I figured out what was going on...

Goose, I fed sportsmix fo years and then over some time I noticed my dogs were needing more feed to maintain weight...then a few were having mild skin issues and one had severe ear infections and when I swapped to another dog food all the problems went away...

20 muleteam borax the laundry detergent is amazing for yeast problems, put it on there food and dilute in spray bottle and spray topically or in ears etc. its a safe mineral to ingest and non toxic in doses of 1 tsp or less per day. ill usually sprinkle the food lightly and spray topical, but for the first few days ill put 1 tsp in some bbq sause or something to cover up the taste they will lick up quick. Sometimes you have to get them off corn to thats in most feed

Yes. Mine have been in kennels on concrete with bad drainage for 1 year now and it’s been the worst year I’ve ever had for conditioning and skin/coat health. Friggin hate this setup.

I am an eternal cheapskate and skimped on a good roof over the kennel, I figured their barrels kept them out of the worst of it so I went with a tarp roof for a while, then used a bunch of other subpar BS until I’ve finally realized that I’ve spent as much on cheap crap as I would have on new tin to begin with.

Also did tons of drainage work, installed a composting septic for them etc, but it’s all for nothing because the slab their on is lower than the surrounding property so no matter how I try it eventually collects the runoff water.

Long story short, your issue is likely jungle rot, rain rot, trench foot, athletes foot, jock itch, etc. it’s fungus caused by gradeux absorption in porous concrete and subsequent contact with your dogs. The reason light colored dogs are showing it is the same reason white faced cattle get cancer eye and pale skinned honkeys like me bake. Sunlight sensitivity. High heat and direct sunlight stress the dogs, their lowered immune system allows fungal inflammation to set in.
