Little Russian lady with a very sore ear...

My beautiful little Russian dwarf has got a very sore looking ear, looks like she may have been chewing or scratching it. It doesn't look crusty but then it does look quite fresh so it may not have had time to develop.

Could it be ear mites? Or am I just overreacting. Tried some different bedding with her a few months ago, but i'm going to go back to the original one just to be safe.

She might've just scratched it and it might sort itself out but I'd rather not take any chances.

If you changed the bedding a few moths ago, then i dont think its that! Its started too late really. It could be and injury, but it would take her too the vets just incase it gets infected.
