Pugs are very vulnerable to skin problems. Skin problems do take a long time to be fully treated. You should continue the treatment prescribed by the Vet. Don't subject your dog to water to much. Give him bath only in 15-20 days time. Regular brushing should be done. You can also start a good skin supplement as well.
