Hello, Welcome to Just Answer! I would be happy to help you with your pet today.
Sometimes dogs will get a cut on the inside of their ear...or if they scratched at the ear they lacerated it themselves with their nail.
The scab is part of the healing process, and you should not remove it.
If you remove it, a new one will continue to form to try to heal the skin in the area and make it normal again.
As long as this area is not oozing anything, there is no foul odor coming from your dog's ear, and your dog is not shaking her head a lot or scratching at her ear, just leave the area alone.
You can put some neopsorin ointment on it if you would like...but do not rub at the area or try to remove the scab.
Just allow it to heal on its own.
After a week or two, the scab should disappear and the cut should be healed.
If you do see any of the other signs that I mentioned above, then she will need to visit the veterinarian for an examination as she may have an ear infection.
I wish you good luck with Bella!
