Unhappy acrylic paint took off hamster fur?!

so my few month old long hair syrian hamster got some acrylic paint on it while its free run about a week ago. i was watching it, but i guess i didnt notice it. it was a small spot just above its nose. today when i took it out to play with it, i saw that the spot didnt have hair anymore! its still in the taming process, so when i tried to take it off initially, it wouldnt let me. now i feel like its all my fault, since i was being incautious. so now theres a small bald spot on his face. will it grow back? do i need to go to a vet, because theres not one close to me! help!

I'm sure it will grow back now it is off. Your hammy was likely scratching at it and rubbing it's not which took the fur off. If can take quite a while to regrow though.
