If it constantly gets infected or bleeds we recommend cauterizing or cutting it out. One advantage to cropping I guess.....I only see it in dogs with thick cartilage ears that fold twice, and are heavy. It turns into a little scar tissue that eventually builds up and folds a little differently. Sometimes even looks like a little hole or ulcer that comes and goes.
I'd just keep an eye on it and help it 'breath' as much as possible....taping the ears works, just temporary. I let Pansers go and it scarred up and doesn't do anythign anymore...
