In the photo, to the right and lower from the scab there appears to be dried discharge clumping the hair together. If so, this would indicate that the scab was due to simple trauma and care would consist of cleaning the area daily with over the counter chlorhexidine such as Hibiclens in your local pharmacy. I regret that my state board of veterinary examiners doesn't allow me to speak to customers by phone in this venue but other experts in this category may be able to assist you in this regard. Please let me know if you'd like another expert to do so and I'll opt out of this conversation. Please stay in the conversation if you wish.
