Default White Crusty Rash

My 9 month old has had a little spot on his ear (in the picture for about a month now.) It has recently started on his nose and is a little crusty, white scab.

Got some advice for Tea Tree Oil. Started putting that on and it looked better for a little bit but then started to become red, very little blood. I am sure he is scratching it some. And he won't let me put the Tree oil on him anymore.

Any advice of what this is? Or anything else that could help. If not it will be off to the vet I go. He doesn't seem in any pain and his mood has not changed on bit.

my dog had this too, and some bumps, i have no clue what it was, but after 2 months it started to heal and now he doesn't have it anymore, i would think he got it because of being out in the rain so much,

Mine hates the rain.

Not sure what caused it. He has been on the same food for most of his life and the issue is only recent.

Have you visited the vet for a diagnosis? The Tea Tree oil can be quite toxic if enough is absorbed into the skin, or if the dog licks it. It's really important to ask your vet about what's going on, but also ways to treat it, and don't take internet advice without double and triple checking it and running it by your vet

This would be the first internet advise.
The other advise was from my breeder.

You should always ask your vet about things like this.

Tea Tree Oil and Dogs, Tea Tree Oil and Cats

Years ago it was advised to dip your dog in motor oil for mange, and feed them tobacco for worms.
Both are useless in their applications and can be deadly to dogs.
My point is there's a ton of people and beliefs, but just because someone fairly reputable says to do it, may not be the case, and in some cases not only make things worse, can kill an animal.
