That looks like it could be a fungus. Read www.guinealynx.info/fungus.html for the directions on how to bathe them with anti-fungal shampoo. I don't know a whole lot about rexes, but they tend to have dry skin and hair, so you might want to investigate something like the Gorgeous Guineas products for managing their hair and skin on a long-term basis.
 
thanks for the reply! ^^ got some products from gorgeous guineas straight away.. waiting for it to be delivered.
 
Wow...That first one looks exactly like my Phoenix, even down to the ears o_O
