My guinea pig has this crusty coating partially surrounding her eye. It is not on the eye, it is on the skin around it. The other eye appears to be normal and I dont notice anything else such as a snotty nose or squinting. I will keep an eye on how she is eating. Her sister appears to be normal as well.

Thanks in advance
 
Could you post a picture of it?
Have you checked guinealynx to see if you see something similar there?
 
Sounds to me more like a fungus if it's on the skin around the eye. I don't think can treat those yourself because of the danger of getting something ine the eye. Post a picture if you can, but I think you'd better be looking up a vet.
 
I just saw her 30 minutes later and it looked completely normal. Im not sure if it will come back
