Sounds like ear mites, hard to see with the naked eye but scabs are a sign. Treat with cattle ivormectin pour own, 2-3 drops at the back of the neck and repeat a week later. This will clear it right up. Ivormec is expensive but will last a long time and is the best for ear mites.
I have been finding small white scaley scabs on the length of the ears, as well, not down inside. No earmites. It was confusing me, until this morning. What I've got are mosquito bites that have been scratched, then scab. Any suggestions on keeping the mosquitoes away?
