I have looked everywhere I can think of online and I can't find what this might be. Truffle has gotten tiny white bumps on her ears and nose and I haven't been able to remove them. Now her ears are looking like little pieces are missing which I assume is from her scratching. The bumps look like tiny salt crystals. Any idea what this is? My other mouse lives in the same cage and she is just fine. https://imgur.com/a/DENHEz2
The pic is a bit blurry. I'm trying to get a clearer one.

Are they like pimples? Mice can get a lot of the same skin conditions as people/other animals. Ears and nose may mean it's possibly URI/infection related, but if she's losing skin it could be mites/parasite. Could also be cysts. Probably a good idea to see a vet, they've seen a lot more pet illnesses/injuries to be able to pinpoint a problem.

@TruffleBug It looks to me like it might just be scars from her already scratching?

It might be a good idea to take her to a vet. She could have an ear infection that's causing her to scratch. She could also have mites, or be having an allergic reaction to her bedding or her food.
