The person I had check on my boys while I was out of town left her 5 year old son alone with them while she went to get food.
The boy obviously decided to try to pick up Charlie and grabbed him by his hair.
I am not sure how it happened exactly, but Charlie is now missing a huge patch of hair and the skin looks red and irritated in spots.
I think he may have dropped him back into the cage as well when his mom ran up the stairs when she heard Charlie yell.
Charlie seems ok. He is eating although not as vigorously as he usually would be. He is walking ok.
So, for now it seems to only be a hair issue.
Is there anything I can do to soothe the areas where the skin looks red?
