Hot spot treatment

What would you recommend as best treatment for a hot spot that I have just noticed ( harvest mite scabs which Otto has started to lick on a paw.) I have removed hair around the spot and have applied colloidial silver. Thanks

Much better actually, less red more light pink and he hasn't been licking it at all today. Thanks for asking.
