    That could either be a burn or some frostbite. The heat lamp may have been too hot, and when asleep, they won't move away. If you have some Neosporin ointment dab some on it, but don't massage it. If you can get a prescription from your vet for silvadene cream, that would be the better treatment--it is for burns. I would move the heat lamp far away, or take it out.
