Unhappy HELP! -Snowflake

Hi to everyone reading this. My hamster Snowflake has a pimple-looking thing on his mouth. I can't seem to find a vet that treats hamsters so what can I do for little Snow to help him recover? (I will take him to a vet as soon as I can find an exotic one.)

It would be very difficult for anyone to give advice without seeing Snowflake. Perhaps you could upload a photo of it?

If it's infected you will need to take him to the vets, if you say where you are someone may be able to recommend a vets to you.

Does anyone here live in Malaysia and has found a exotic vet?

Here are some pictures on Snowflake. It is quite blurry because my phone won't focus.

It's not really possible to see what it is, whether it's some kind of infection or growth for example but it is clear there's a lot of redness & swelling so Snowflake really does need to see a vet as soon as possible. I don't think there's anything you would be able to do to help yourself.
Did you try the vet finder BP linked to?

I got an update guys! Apparently he had a growing black tumour on the red spot. We took him to the nearest hammy vet clinic and they did some minor surgery. The wound is now stitched up and he is receiving medicine and liquid food by Oxbow. Thanks for the help everyone!

Good to hear he's been treated, hope he recovers fully & quickly now.
