Bleeding sore/growth on flank

This sore started out looking like an abrasion like it got nicked on a piece of wire or something. We have had an infestation of horseflies and also some lice that were treated with ivermectin recently.

I have been cleaning and applying iodine to the area. There is no sign of pus. There is a blood supply to the sore and bleeds easily when rubbed against things or even when rubbed with fingers.

There are 4 other pigs in the same enclosure (about 0.25 acre pasture/woods). None of the others have any sign of sores or infections of any kind.

if you recognize this please give me some insight.
