    Dry Skin on and Brown Crust on Back of Ear?

    Hi, The back of one of my guinea pigs ear has gone dry and there’s some dark areas on the skin. The back of her other ear is fine and her cage mate is also fine. Would anyone know what it is? I have a photo but can't figure out how to attach it. The Insert Image icon asks for a URL?
