Our 6+ female has 2 tiny marks which looks like sores to me on her lady parts we have been checking them every few days and only noticed them tonight any ideas what they could be as Iv never seen this sort of thing on any of my piggies before,

Is it possible to post a picture?
This might make it easier to offer advice.
How does she seem within herself?
Eating ok, drinking, normal activity levels?

Hi! Please see a vet if there are sores.

I can't really see any sores as such, but if its the yellow marks is it the start of urine scald? Her hair looks a little yellowish too on the left-or is that a patch of normal coloured hair?
I think if is, she may have a bit of a smelly bum too.
If she was mine I would give her a tepid bum bath &dry her off thoroughly (gentle patting with a soft towel or low heat setting on a hairdryer (one of mine loves the blow dry! :wub:)
Just smear a THIN layer of sudocream on the marks (not in her opening only around it).
This will act as a barrier against the urine &heal/soothe it at the same time.

If she is an older lady maybe check with the vet its not pain or arthritis related &which is making her want to stay in the same position longer &sitting in her urine
It could also be a urine infection/mild cystitis causing her to dribble/leak a little.

Discuss with your vet about painkillers tho as this may make her move around more &not sit in her urine.
If she's in pain she may loose her appetite so keep an eye on any weight fluctuations or reluctance to eat.
If it gets worse or changes significantly (colour,size or shape)definitely book a vets appointment.
Healing vibes. Xx

The saw is on the left hand side as you look at the picture just at the bottom of her vaginal lips

Due to her age I give her a bottom wash every other day just to be on the safe side as I know she has trouble getting to that area these days, her hair is normaly that colour and it's wet as they have all just had there bath, I'll pop some sudo cream on her now thank you and I'll let you know how we get on in the morning. We know she has bad teeth so maybe she's getting pain from them which is making her not want to move I'll defently get the vet to give her a good going over and bring up all the points
Thank you all again for your help X

Just looks like a bit of crusty poo/wee to me. One of mine occasionally gets a crusty foofoo so I just clean her with a baby wipe and all is well again
