Crusty knee

Any ideas please people?  Pickle's developed a crusty front knee and isn't keen on us going anywhere near it, nor the other one which currently looks OK.  Him and Branston were both treated with mite and louse stuff around 3 weeks ago by the vet for random itchiness which was accompanied by feet stomping!

Could it be an allergic reaction. I think I'd be inclined to ring the vet and ask.

It doesn't definitely look like any particular condition. It might get better in time, but it might be caused by something. It doesn't look too bad just now, I would see how it does over a few days, and if there is no improvement then ask your vet.
