Seems like one of my dogs ears is rotting

I have a scottish terrier.  she was a rescue is deplorable condition.  She had also been bitten at one point (before I got her) by a rattle snake which resulted in the lose of one eye and her head on that side totally sinking in.  After a recent groom I noticed her fur on one ear (same side as the rattle snake bite) was falling out on the tip.  The vet plucked hairs and tested but nothing came up.  The fur eventually grew back, but now I've noticed that the eye is much smaller than the other and the tip is thickened.  Also appears to be flaking or ???  I don't know if this would have to do with the long ago rattle snake bite or if it is something else.  I am under a flood warning for the next 2 days but will call the vet and go back once the weather system passes.  In the mean time I was wondering if anyone has had experience with something similar?  It does not seem to bother her at all...no scratching etc.

I have no experience with snake bites but a thickening of the ear tissue may be a hematoma.  Our rescue Terrier (Westie) had one, he also lost his hearing to Yeast infection which also causes hair to fall out, and smell bad...some say like corn chips (I don't think corn chips smell that bad).

It doesn't sound like an emergency to me, hope you escape damage from the floods.
