Hi there, I’m sorry to hear your pup has maggots on its skin. Maggots can be harmful for your dog,

so you should try to remove them as soon as possible. First, make sure you are wearing protective gloves and clothing.

Then, you can either use tweezers to carefully remove each maggot one by one, or use a very mild insecticide spray to kill the maggots.

Be sure to read the instructions of the insecticide and keep your pup away from the area while spraying. Afterwards, you can use a flea comb to gently comb out any remaining maggots. I hope this helps!
