My dwarf hamster, Skrump, seems to have an infected scent gland. I have tried putting warm water on a q-tip and cleaning it off, and I've also tried putting a little bit of neosporin on it, but nothing has helped. The past couple of days it has swollen more, and it looks clogged (there is some stuff kind of oozing out of it)...Should I take him to the vet, or is there something I can do at home to help fix it? I don't mind taking him to the vet, because I don't think they'd do anything major to it other than maybe clean it with a saline solution or give him antibiotics, but I don't trust our vets for anything major. Anyway, can someone help me out? He also has this Frito smell about him, lol. I don't know if it is from the scent gland or what, but he's a stinky little boy.
