Hi ive had Coco for 2 months now with his 3 other piggies.
I was having a one on one time with coco today, when i was petting him, i felt something big and bumpy on the back of hid head, i checked and it was a huge scab, idk if it was a bite from the other guinea pigs, since theres a lot of humping going on and chasing or is it ringworm or mites ?
Im going to post a picture up to make it easier for u guys to help me outt
Im going to bring him to the vet on tuesday which is my paycheck, because right now i have no money for the vet, so im resorting to signing up here and posting this cus its scaring me, hes not as energetic anymore..

Best pictures i could take, shitty camera..

It looks like an abscess is already forming since it's rounding up. I'd have it vet checked since an abscess can grown rapidly and is harder to treat then. Abscesses keep filling with pus so if you don't have it lanced, cleaned and give your pig an antibiotic, it will continue to get larger.
