Default Weird rash behind his ear?

Hey! I noticed when I was playing with Boost that he has a small rash behind his right ear. It's red and looks like it was bleeding a little at one point bc it's kind of crusty. I can't get a picture of it bc he doesn't like to hold still very long. But I have a vet appointment for him tomorrow afternoon but I'd like to see what you guys think about it. I thought it was mites at first but he hasn't been scratching it at all. In fact I don't see him scratching at all ever. I've only seen him scratch his side once and it was only for like 2 seconds and he went back to playing. What could this be?

Could be mites, an infection, an injury, or any number of things. It's hard to say without photos. The good news is that you already have a vet appointment set up, so you'll find out soon. In the meantime, avoid using any oils since that could make an infection worse.
