Help My Rabbit's Ears Are Going Transparent!

Transparent Ear Tip
Help! My rabbit's ear is going transparent!
I have a problem with one of my decorative rabbits ears and I really need help finding out what it is so I can treat it and make it stop spreading.
My rabbit is a baby, about a month old, and lives with another baby rabbit. The father and mother are separated from them now.
It started about two weeks ago and it is spreading every day!
The problem is right on the tip of the ear. There is something like wound and it is 'drying' the ear from the top. It's making the skin gauzy and transparent!
Both my baby rabbits mix with the their adult parent on a regular basis and I was thinking that maybe one of them has bitten it, or something. But then why would these symptoms only be on one baby and not the other baby. Since finding this problem I've stopped them all mixing together until I find out what the problem is.
I have asked some veterinarians and told them about the symptoms but they didn't really help and one told me to put Vaseline on it. I did this but it didn't help at all.
The fact that it is spreading and growing bigger is baffling to me and the fact that the other baby rabbit is not affected anywhere.
I do know that it must hurt because the baby doesn't let me touch the ear without the obvious signs of it being painful.
I really hope that you can help me and the baby rabbit in telling me what this is and what I can do to make it better.
