What is this rash???

Has anyone seen this rash on a fawn before? It is on his ears, around the eyes nose and mouth. We just picked it up from a lady who's dog brought it home about a week ago. She said it already had the large marks on it's forhead and that this rash and bumps started in the last day or two.The raw spot on the ear is where some of the rash rubbed off when I picked him up. She has had it 6 days feeding it goat milk not fawn formula. We will be taking him to a rescuer in a couple days but need to know what this is in case it needs meds now. I have raised a couple fawns with no problems but haven't seen this before. Any help would be appreciated.

I would give this fawn some Ivermic wormer looks like a mite to me but is just a guess. Ivermic can't hurt the fawn so I would try that.

Thanks , I will try that. I kind of think it may be a allergic reaction to something, maby the goat's milk or something that he was licking in the home he was in??? Not sure, looks a little better today.
