Miniature donkey has unusual scratches

On the right side of my miniature donkey's head, right under her eye and another close to her mouth, are 2 "scratches." That's the best way to describe the look. Also, she has black spots around them and around her eye.

I can not visualise what you describe. Are the scratches or the spots bothering her? Could they be associted with flies irritating areas that are moist from tear secretion or saliva? Is it possible to photograph the scratches and the lumps and send the photos by e mail to se@1vet.info. Please note I do not respond to e mail queries sent to this address on spec. All the veterinary advice I give is through this web site.

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond. I applied some triple antibiotic ointment to the spots and kept a close eye on her. The sores have scabbed and seem to be improved. It's possible she got into the barbed wire or against some cactus. I will make a note, however of your email info and contact you again if I need more assistance. (If that is ok) Thank you once again!

Glad to hear that these scars are healing. Please use the website if you require further help. E maiols tend to end up in the junk folder unless I am expecting them. I hope to get some form of photograph facility on the site soon. I may have to work out a way of it funding itself first. Any ideas on that score gratefully received.

Well, I believe you have done an awesome job. This is the only site that I received any ideas, much less answers. (Without charging of course.)
Keep up the good work!
