[GuineaPigCages.com] Bald spot

I noticed this on mochi today, there’s a little red dot in the middle. Did he get scratched? Is this something I need to worry about or will it heal?

Is it itchy?

Take a good look at it and see if it's a puncture wound. If so, I would take him to a vet because of the high likelihood of it forming an abscess in that area.

If it's not a puncture, I'd get some triple antibiotic cream and apply it sparingly twice a day with a q-tip. Be sure to rub it in thoroughly.
 
Hi, I never see him itching it and I don’t think it’s a puncture wound but it’s hard to really look because he’s never liked me touching his neck. I’ll keep bothering him about it until he lets me get a good look

Should it be a specific brand of triple antibiotic cream?
 
No. Triple antibiotic cream is a product made by several companies. Any brand will do.
