Get some monistat or nystatin, put a little on with a q-tip and rub it in well. Do this 2 or 3 times a day for a few days and see if it gets better. it looks like a fungus to me, and either of those medications should take care of it.

No, everybody's already been exposed. But you'll have to clean the cage thoroughly, wash everything washable, and watch everybody else to make sure they're not coming down with it.
