Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Where is this scab at on her ear? Can you take a photo of it? How long has it been there? Is she scratching the ear?

I'm curious to see what it looks like. Scabs can be due to something simple like external trauma. Typically these just heal with time. Others can be due to them self traumatizing due to scratching their own ears. These situations need to have the underlying ear issue treated to get them to resolve. These can be due to ear infections or ear mites. Some can have scabbing on the ear due to frost bite, but this shouldn't be the problem this time of year (unless this has been there a long time).
