I brought home my new sow earlier this week and have noticed a scabby area on the side of her face. I have checked her all over and there are no other patches like this.
I have put some candula & silver cream on the area today, but wondered what peoples view were of it?
Does it look fungal to you? & what is the best course of treatment, especially with her being so young still!
If it's no better with creams by Monday I am planning to take her to the vets.
Sorry that the photos aren't that great quality!

Thank you in advance. x

EDIT: I have already treated her for mites with xeno 50 to rule that out.
