Post My Lulu has this around her eyes can someone please tell me what it is

Hello,

I noticed my hamster has these pink spots on her eyes I first noticed a while back it was so tiny I though it was a bald spot from scratching however I don't see her scratching all the time or constantly. Then it looks like this if someone knows please let me know.

This looks to be an eye infection. It's similar to a stye in humans and can be quite sore so she is likely scratching at it and making it worse. I would see a vet who should be able to prescribe eye drops or gel to help it get better.

Yeah, perhaps an infected tear duct? Hopefully the vet will diagnose it and prescribe something for her xo

She needs antibiotics, that is an infection (my hamster had the same thing). Please take her to the vet
