Scale rot is typically a problem with the ventral scales, not dorsals. Finally, be cautious about ascribing a problem to a "genetic defect". There are potential problems from inbreeding indigos (enlarged hearts, split dorsal scales), but likely not flaky dorsal scales. Sounds like you are guessing.
