Black dots on comb, Wondering what it means.

My Buff Orpington I’ve had for about a year is getting small black dots on her comb and wattles, it’s only her and she’s acting like herself. I’m really not sure what to do about it, please help. (She is also molting but I don’t think that has anything to do with it)

Here is a picture.
That looks more like fowl pox than peck wounds. There is no cure and it has to run its course.
You can support with Poultry Nutri-drench in the water and monitor for signs that she is in respiratory distress if lesions form in her mouth.
Is there any standing water near where the chickens are housed? I would do what you can to minimize mosquitoes.
