Upadate:
We goes to vet yesterday , Mala (gray) is fine (by words of vet) and she dont need any meds, Bela (white ) yesterday was shaking and disoriented,almost cant walk, and she dont eat, vet says that she must take antibiotics and that is not fungus now on her skin(uv lamp use), she has now bacteria infection of skin. He say that she is too weak and he didn't think that she will be better
Actually I think that he doesn't know from why she gets ill.. He cant say what is in her ear and why she gets at first itchines..

I give her antibiotic (he doesnt told me name give me it in small tube) and electrolits with thyme tea , one small spoon every hour, bactricyn and neomicyn on wounds direct, and now she eat only blended fruit and tomato . I put warm bottle near nest to warm up her.
She stop shaking now, skin are not red and there are no open wounds as yesterday but she almost cant walk..
Are anyone has similar experience? Do anyone has advice?
I can't have better vet care, because here it does not exist..
SORRY FOR BAD ENGLISH..

I would separate the two poorly ones and give them a cage each. Sometimes a group of dwarf hamsters can fight. The wounds may be from fights. Even if they aren’t, the two poorly ones will now be at risk of being attacked and killed by the others who will sense their weakness - it’s just nature.

Are all five siblings that have always lived together?

You could maybe use plastic bin/ storage boxes as temporary cages for the two who are unwell. Also how old are they?

Sorry I misunderstood. They are quite old at 26 months and it sounds like the one hero is ill is near her time unfortunately. You could try with the antibiotics but if you think she is suffering it may be kinder to help her on her way.
