Could be ringworm. This responds to iodine. I just use a paper towel or a cotten ball and cover the area in betadine or strong iodine once a day. Ringworm will look nearly circular, can be itchy will be more crusty out to the edges of the lesion.

If it is very itchy this could be a sign of meningeal worm infection. These lesions usually run in a vertical line along the body and itch intensely. You can try giving ivermectin injectable for cattle but this time do give it by injection at 1 cc per 20 pounds for 3 days. Then give Safeguard at 1 cc per 10 pounds orally for 5 days.

I have a 2 year old doe that has developed sores above her tail. They are about the size of a quarter, the hair has fallen out and the skin appears to be raw. The first one appeared last week (I didn't think much of it), but now another one has appeared. They are just a couple inches above her tail. Could this be something I need to be concerned about?
