Default Small patch of dry skin

Hi everyone

My Luna is almost a year old now, and she's had issues with parasites and yeast infections in the past, which I've discovered simply by having the vet check her out because of scratching, but I've never seen her skin look like this before.

She's been acting completely normal, eating well, running on her wheel, feces and everything looks fine, but she has this small patch of dry skin and has lost a few quills (really, only a few, not sure if that's related).

I'll take her to the vet ASAP for sure, but I wondered if anyone else has experienced this with their hogs?

I tried to get a decent picture...

- Anastasia (and Luna)
