The underside of my hen's comb is turning white and dry, does anyone know what's going on / how to fix it?

Is the tan color from healing wounds, such as pecking or running into metal fencing? What does the other side look like? Sometimes a whie comb can be from dry skin, but it might a fungal infection called favus. Does it appear to be spreading onto her face? Miconazole or clotrimazole cream can be used to treat favus, while coconut oil would be useful to treat dry skin.
