hi so recently my Syrian hamster Perry had developed what is think is to be a rash.?

I have done some research and I have reason to belive it’s mites. I just gave her aspen wood bedding and didn’t freeze it so that could have been it and I feel terrible. If it is mites I’m going to try a homemade remedy for it but I’m just not sure. It would be amazing if I could get some help becuse to be honest I could just be her but I am scared out of my mind so if I could please get some help it would be so great thank you so much.

    Mange - Sarcoptic mange is technically a type of mite, thoroughly cleaning the cage and purchasing Ivermectin drops is needed.

    To be on the safe side, spray a bit of flea spray around.
