Hello this is Dr. Holloway but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your pet Daisy has red patchy, scaly skin in one of her ears, and a current cancer of her nose. I am sorry to hear that she has cancer.

Can you please share a photo of the ear close up so that I may see what this area looks like and can proceed with further recommendations. There should be an icon there on your screen just above the chat type box to upload photo's labeled "Add photo" or "Attach photo" that you can use. I will await your reply, and if you are having trouble then please let me know and I will do my best to assist.
