    Guinea pig dry skin?

    I just noticed along where my guinea pigs hair parts there is clumps of dry skin that is slightly raised. Hard to explain but almost as if dandruff grew out with the hair and now sits a few cm above skin . Does anyone know what this is she doesn't seem to be scratching anymore than normal.

    That clump on the hair suggests a possible fungal infection. You could bathe with Nizoral -- see http://www.guinealynx.info/fungus.html for instructions.
