Exclamation Getting bald patches!

Hi everyone,
Peanut has had a few bald patches on her back for around 5 days I think, I really don't know what they are for etc. Her bedding is the same she's had for almost a year so I don't think she's allergic to that. Im really worried so if you could help me i'd really appreciate it. Also If this helps she is a Syrian.

When you say a few bald patches do you mean where her glands are, kind of on the sides (flanks)?

My hamster has bald patches on each side of his back. They sometimes pluck the fur out around their scent glands.

Could you post a photo so people here can have a look?

Thats the best I could get as she's very fast XD they have started to get less noticeable, the one on her other side you can't even see.

I'm not certain if the bold patches are on the scent glands, but the skin appears to be good.
Have you seen her scratching or over grooming these days?
