    Do post a picture. In the meantime, take a look at http://www.guinealynx.info/cheilitis.html and see if it looks like that.

    Looks like the beginning of cheilitis to me, but the picture is pretty fuzzy.

    It looks to me like it's getting worse. I'd see a vet.

    Oh! You should bring him to the vet! Is he still eating and drinking fine?

    He hasn’t eaten much in the last day or two I tried everything! I’m going to have to see if tomorrow I can find a vet, I thought the Neosporin was helping; but with him not eating now ? I’m so scared he is old,

    You should try hand feeding him until you can bring him to a vet.
    here is a link about that: https://www.guineapigcages.com/forum...g-a-guinea-pig

    How old is he?
