I've looked at too many photos online and searched the forums, but I'm not seeing anything that fits this case exactly. We have 22 goats and just one has a scab under his chin, with the hair gone around it. It was redder in the center and looked like a raised scab. He recently developed another spot. It's not ring worm (gone through that so we're familiar with that), but wondering if it could be sore mouth?

From the pics I've seen of that online, it usually doesn't look like the hair disappears around the spot, but maybe it can? He has no other spots, lesions, or anything else. Isn't losing weight, isn't lethargic, etc.

I've attached a photo that shows the first spot. The second looks just like it, and is next to it. Both under chin.

Thanks in advance for your help!

It may have started with a splinter or a thorn. I looks infected now.

Thank you all for the reply. I’ll start treating with Chlorhexidine and Wound-Kote. Is there anything else you’d recommend I start doing ASAP?
