scars and mites info

so my new arabian has a few scars, some big and some small. most are along his ribs. but there is one on his chest. i am not sure what caused the scars. but i would like to make them smaller and get some hair in those areas. and he also has mites mostly in his ears. but i noticed some crawling on his body.

so hear are my questions:

anyone have any remedies or know anything that will grow the hair back and minimize the scar?

and then what can i use to get rid of the mites? one horse i had , had mites and let me clean her ears without a problem but this guy is sensitive. and i want to make him comfortable as fast as possible as this is starting to effect haltering him in the field.
and a side note am i going to have to bath him now that i saw mites on his body??

any ideas thanks

I think the mites question should be directed at your vet. Depending on the type of mite, depends on the treatment. For the scars, you could try some vitamin E oils rubbed into the scar.
