Default dry flaky ears?

Andy's ears look like they have dandruff, not to much, just a little bit. As i was doing his regular health check today, i noticed it looked a bit flaky. I know coconut oil moisturizes skin, so i was wondering if i could put a little bit of it on his ears? (his ears have VERY thin fur on them)

Too much coconut oil for their GI systems can be bad, but only a small amount on his ears would be fine I would think.

Actually what might work best is for you to add some humidity to the area your bun is at. A humidifier works great, but if you can't get a hold of one, a pot of water boiling in the kitchen would help out a ton too.

If your house has a lot of wood in it, the added moisture will be good for it too. :-) (my mom and dads house has wormy chestnut everywhere, and the humidifier keeps the wood from cracking)
