As others mentioned - the scabs are not from the stim, but from the rubbing of the contacts. How long does he have the collar on at a time? If he has it on all day, you need to re-position it every few hours to prevent irritation.
Is this the type of collar that has a ring for the leash? Do you use the leash attached to the e-collar? I've been taught to not use the e-collar for the leash attachment, as the extra pulling/rubbing can cause irritation. Have a regular collar for the leash in addition to the e-collar.
Another thought is that he may have a local allergic reaction to the metal on the prongs - not sure what to suggest if that is the case.
