Mange Vs. Hot Spots

Can anyone tell me how one goes about determining whether a dog has mange or hot spots? My lab chewed his tail yesterday until it was bare of hair (about half dollar size) and today on his hind quarter (about size of a quarter). Both sites have scaly bumps. Thanks for any help.

Either way, a good mange remedy will solve the problem and not harm the animal, hugs suzy
