That looks very much like something a couple of my Boer kids had earlier this year. I have no idea what it was, but the bumps on mine got a little bigger and then kind of popped and scabbed over. Cleared up on it's own after about a week.

it flakes off like dried skin so I think that is all it is.......... but of course I panick over anything like this now.

I guess I will try some Vasiline stuff on it (the kind for your lips)

What are you using to clean hines? Could their be something in it that driers them a little to much? Maybe moms have a nature moistening when they clean? I really don't know just guessing. Juliette over clean and cause sore this year :roll: . Shelly

Stacey. I have a bottle baby who also started off like that and now has little scabs all over her body even her legs. I am not sure what it is. No other goat or kid has it. My little doe just turned 3 months so I saw that it may be a mite on some websites I looked at so I just wormed her with Ivermectin and will do it again in 15 days. If it doesn't clear it up then I'll take her to the vet. If you find out let me know it could be the same problem. Do they ever scratch? She did sometimes before she broke out.

That looks and sounds like what Dottie had too- but her's has lasted months- maybe it's like one of those childhood things that you should get when younger otherwise it's much worse.
Never did get a diagnosis with Dottie but I think it was a staph dermatitis.

Maybe it's Milk Rash. Out vet told us when we first got the buckling that since we were bottle feeding him that it was a possability. He said it was nothing to worry about just that bottle babies are prone to it. He also said we would notice it first around his mouth or on his bottom. Just a thought.
