I would say sore mouth also known as orf. This is highly contagious to you +and other goats so you want to make sure you are wearing gloves when handling your baby. Unfortunately it has to run it's course, But you can use some topicals to get rid of some crusties, always wearing gloves of course, You can do a search here for more complete info and google...

I did a eat mite treatment
We're not talking just ear mites. I'd do a sub q injection of ivermectin as well as the topicals that NDO707 mentioned because even if it isn't mites, it wont hurt and then you can rule that out as a cause. 1cc per 40lbs is the dosage for injectable ivermectin. It really could be orf/soremouth though. It really does look like that.
