Spots on ears?

Year old doe. Deer flys have been bad, they tore up her snout. Then just this week round scabs have formed on her ears. I've been away for over a week, just saw them today. What do these spots look like?

Those spots look like possibly ringworm which is a fungus. Any more similar spots elsewhere? Stuff is highly contagious, to humans too. If you can touch the doe, apply some fungus ointment (the athlete foot cream for humans OTC is fine), or get anti fungal liquid/treatment from TSC or Jeffers Livestock web/catalog. Takes diligence to get rid of it. Definitely continue treatment after spots disappear or it might be right back. Wear gloves and wash hands or any other part of yourself that might have touched the spots.

I thought ring worn too. Took pics to vet, he said it was just insect bites. The scabs have fallen off and are healed now.

When mine had that I put a small amount of cream on the spots made for Jock itch. The scabs fell off and the spots went away.
