I've noticed my Guinea pig Daisy has a flaky, white patch on both ears. There both only small but One ear has a slightly bigger patch then the other. I only just noticed it now and I'm not sure if it's a fungal infection or dry skin. She is still eating,drinking,weeing and pooping but I'm not sure weather there is really something wrong with her? This picture is of the ear with the bigger patch.image.jpg

It looks like some fungal to me from what I can see. Please see a vet; hopefully it is just a mild variety that you can get on top with some topical treatment.

Thank you for your help:nod: I took her to the vets today and she thinks it may be ringworm or just some dry skin so she gave me some ear drops to help.
