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.
