About a month ago I was petting my bunny and notice that his skin felt kinda weird. When I lifted his fur to see what’s up with his skin it was all rough and felt like scabs or something. I’m not sure how to describe it. But I thought it was cuz maybe he hurt himself and a scab was forming and stuff. I felt this on his bottom back and it still hasn’t gone away. I don’t think this is normal or maybe it is I’m not sure. Is it just going to fall out and grow new fur. I hope it’s nothing bad :(

I would take your bun to be checked by an experienced rabbit vet. That could be a burst abscess, or I'm not sure what else might be going on there as it doesn't present like a typical skin disease in rabbits, but whatever it is looks like something that will need the proper veterinary treatment. Unless it's a clump of food or something like that stuck to the fur, but that would be something you would need to determine.
