Her name is Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (aka: Twinkle), and my little guy is VERY attached - he was "in love" from the second he saw her, none of the other piggies would do.
...i have pictures... our small animal vet isn't open yet...
Meanwhile read over and examine your guinea pig for dandruff and/or scratching:
She is single, and I haven't seen her scratching, but I suspect that is what happened. One lump has dislodged, leaving raw skin and the other looks very much like a scab now. And she has crusty / rough ear flap next to the areas. I suspect mites, but can't confirm or treat her myself (no meds at our pet store and only horse doses at Tractor Supply, and I'm not a vet LOL).
This was supposed to be a great easy pet for our autistic little boy
I'm holding her and she sounds uncomfortable now, and she doesn't want her belly touched. She's eating her "magic poop", lounging on her side, had some celery and a nail trim, all after a coconut oil massage to the affected areas.
I will order the meds ASAP... any other skin care help would be greatly appreciated!
Once she's recovered, I'd consider adopting her a companion from a rescue.
I once had a pig that had a fungal issue that looked similar to scabs. It took quite awhile of an anti-fungal cream to clear it up.
