JA: I'll do all I can to help. Is your rabbit bleeding a lot?

Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible

Could you send me a picture of the injury please?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Here is a picture

OK, this is a very small lesion which looks to have already scabbed over already. I would monitor it, but I feel it is unlikely to need any treatment unless it worsens.

I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.

Thank you. Do you know how she might have got this? What should we look out for to know it has worsened?

Is she housed with another rabbit?

Monitor for redness/swelling or discharge from the area

she is with two others, both girls
Customer: replied 11 days ago.
It is her and her sister who are netherland dwarf mini lop cross and a lion head mini lop cross

OK. Probably a fight with one of the others is the most likely cause. This is something to monitor carefully for the avoid further injuries.
