The photo you posted appears to be a generic one. Do you have a photo of your rabbit and of your rabbit's habitat? That could help us figure things out.

The source of the scalding will need to be determined as there are many possibilities. Appropriate treatment depends on the cause.
Here are a couple good resources that explains the possible causes.

Clean litter more frequently. Rabbits who have scald on their hocks/feet is mostly due to standing in soiled litter/soiled hay. There are some litter systems designed to fix this.

Thank you so much for all of your replies, I have used a warm cloth and soak the back legs and cleaned the litter and it appears to have improved. Really appreciate the replies and the love and support on this platform.
