Dandruff. Mange?

Hello I am new to goats; I have Nigerian Pygmy which we have nursed back and is doing well with one exception. He has what looks like flakes of dry skin around his horns and ears. Do goats get mange? Is there something I can put on him to cure this?

Probably lice. You can dust him with Sevin dust but be careful not to get any in his eyes. You can also give him a shot of Ivomec at 1cc per 40 lbs SQ.
