Scabs from a scrape or cut?

Definitely not a scrape or cut. How would mites be treated?

it looks a bit like malasezia (sp). Its like a yeast infection (i think!) and you can treat it with malaseb shampoo which you'll need to get from your vet.

Looks like ringworm, a fungal infection - it's annoying but not harmful but can affect humans so wash your hands well and wash her bedding etc too

Thanks for all the replies. It doesn't seem to be itchy but she flinches if you touch it.

Vet said either a bacterial or fungal infection and has prescribed shampoo to treat. If not starting to clear after three weeks she'll take skin scrapings etc
