I have a goat that seems to be having some skin issues. I thought it may have been from rubbing on the feeder, by this morning she has one on the top of her shoulder. I scrubbed with Betadine and applied polysporan anti itch. I checked for lice and did not see anything. No new animals have been introduced. Any thoughts?

Looks like maybe a staph infection. You could wash it with Hibeclens (available at drug stores or Walmart).

Nope, not pus, just kinda flaky, bit a scabby. The new spots just look like dry skin but the hair is gone. It’s not weepy at all. It’s itchy. You start to touch it and she’s goes into scratching motions.

Mites.

They are everywhere anyway, you don't need to bring them in.
