Answer
Hello,
I is probably healing and it will itch when this is going on.  You can use an antibiotic ointment on it to keep it moist.  Also a very good Anti itch and skin conditioner is Infinity Plus Topical.  It is great for coat and skin!
You can find it at royaldandie.com on their product page.
Be sure to Worm your piglet with Ivomec.
Hope tis helps,
Patty
