Do you have any more information?

How old is she? How long has this been going on for? Are there any other symptoms e.g scratching or dry skin? Do you have any pictures?

My friend's hamster had this, it's just age for her, so I guess, probably age. How old is she?

It could be any number of things tbh, if you could provide some photos and/or some more detailed information it would would help

If the skin is not red and itchy I would be inclined to say that its not mites, this usually shows firstly behind the ears anyway.

Is she eating well and did she go through some kind of stress recently?

It would be good to see a pic, Whizzbit has had mites and he lost the hair across his back and on his tummy. He's had treatment and his hair is growing back now, but he still had to have three more clear skin scrapes poor little man.
