Hello, I am new here but I have a concerning question. My new baby goat I just bought a couple days ago has some very scabby ears and I have never encountered this before. I am concerned because it looks like too much for dandruff but she also just barely got dewormed. A little about her, she is a female, that's 8 weeks, she is a silky fainting goat. She is active and is eating just fine and her poop looks normal. This also isn't happening anywhere else besides the ears. I also think it's not something in the area she lives in because I have other goats that are just fine and don't have any flaky skin. I will attach picture of her ears down below. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to make it heal and go away.
Thank You!

It does look like mites. Usually if 1 goat has them, they share with all the others. Just watch them for any signs. I use Python dust in the goat house. I put 1/2 permethrin & 1/2 water on all my goats. I use a turkey baster, put it from back of head to end of tail, then down each leg. Then on each under side. It kills fleas, tics, mites, lice, and stops flies . That way I keep mine pest free. Hope this helps.

Get some Ivomec pour on the blue liquid.
Put it along the topline, 1 cc per 22lbs.
Scrape off the scabs and you can dab some of it on the ears.
Be careful not to get it in the eyes.

Or put on what has been suggested.
