my dog has lots of little scabs on his head… but he has one big crusty scab underneath his ear and it looks really sore. I have been putting on ( a antiseptic cream) because he has been itching it.
Can someone tell me what it is.

Does he have fleas?? Scabs are commonly caused on dogs due to scratching of fleas, its normal to have sores if a dog has fleas because they will scratch their skin right off! (OUCH!!)* But if his scabs/sores are not related to scratching you may wanna get him checked for a range of skin diseases that dogs can get including the mange.
