Horse has Aural Plaque in both ears

Okay so it was about a week or two ago when I first noticed the white spots in my 6 year old Arabian geldings ears. I didnt think much about it until a few days ago when I started researching it on the internet, come to find out I THINK it might be what is called "Aural Plaque" They say its a virus and since he was rescued he has/had a weak immune system, easier to catch strange things I guess. Any how, so does he have Aural Plaque (See pictures below) And in what way can I treat it!? I was reading about something called "Dermafas" But they sadly don't sell it anymore as far as I know. So what would you use? And could I use Vaseline for treating it? Do you have any ideas of Natural or Herbal Remedies that might work? Please, unload with me on all the information you know about Aural Plaque
(Please, excuse my ugly fingers, such a shame that I still bite them... bad habit that I can't break! )

He does look to have a little bit. The dried crusty bloody stuff is from flies feeding on it. The best thing to do is to to get a fly mask with ears. They will lessen and maybe even clear up over time with just better nutrition. Give him a Vit A supplement to improve the skin quality as well.

Okay, I will! And thanks. Yes, I will be investing in a mask with ear covers ASAP. As I said, he was rescued so he is still a bit unhealthy with unhealthy skin and hair... We are working on it! So you wouldnt try to remove the plaque and try to put something on it? Or would it be better to leave well alone? He doesnt really mind his ears being handled, not that much but he is very head shy with a fly mask being put on AND his bridle. Also, he shakes his head alot due to what I think is something involving the plaque or the gnats landing in his ears *Eww*

I would just leave them alone. Clean them out with just a wet washcloth than cover them up.

My boy Murray has this. I just leave it alone, since it doesn't bother him. You could put Vasline on it, but I don't think it does much as it didn't for Murray. Good luck. :)

I'd put some Lanolin ointment on it. I use it on rabbits with ear mites to give them some relief while the meds work.

The only reason I would like to remove them is it looks like it is bothering him... I wanted to try vaseline but I didnt know if it would work, I guess I will give it a shot though xD If nothing works to remove them I wont bother them... Thanks!
