I was given Surolan ointment when my boy had a fungal infection when he was 8wks old - it worked quite well. I applied it by putting a few drops on to a cotton pad and dabbing it in to the area, i fed him some treats for a few mins while it soaked in to the skin - just to ensure he didn't lick it and digest any of it.

cool,thanks.
my boy has a patch over his eye so i have to be mega careful not to get any in his eye while he squirms and a patch by his nipple, i also feed him a treat but he is not silly haha. i have 2 boys, the vet said i would not need to seperate them but keep an eye on the other incase he gets it ?
they are both being treated with xeno 50 for mites.

I didn't separate my boys as there was no point - fungal infections are passed easily, so it was inevitable really that his cage mate would have it - so separating may cause more distress, i would personally continue doing what you are doing - if they are both being treated for mites then the only thing you need to look out for are any bald spots on your other piggie.

I would also give the cage a thorough clean out every few days using a white vinegar and water solution. Also be sure to follow a strict hygiene regime (i.e plenty of handwashing - and keeping handling to a minimum).

I'm sure your boy(s) will be back to normal in no time :)
