It does looks more like fur mite (Cheyletiella parasitovorax), especially with the dandruff. I had to treat one of my buns for that recently. The spot-on treatment made little different so he ended up having ivermectin injections. The vet said it can be tricky to clear up sometimes. So if you are not seeing improvement with Xeno, you could get either the injection (1 every 10-14 days. 3 doses in total) or try another topical treatment, Stronghold (a.k.a. Revolution).

Or it could be ringworm. Probably worth checking.

Im not certain about the dark spot. To me, it just looks like pigmented skin or where the fur is just starting to grow back. It can look like a shadow initially, then after some time you’ll feel the fur.
