Default Lots of gland discharge

I'm sorry if this is not in the right place.... But here goes. A friend of mine (she is not on the forum) showed me that her russian dwarf has lits of gland discharge as shown in the pic. I don't have that much experience but i find that it is a lot. More than what my hamsters have.
I would also like to point out that 2 days ago she changed the bedding from scented pine shavings to paper. Could this be the cause? Is the hamster over scenting his stuff? The hamster also doesn't have access to a sand bath.

I would also have to add that he is corrently in an unsuitable cage. I was assured by the owner that this will be resolved soon. He also doesn't have a proper wheeel.

It could be just that he's been scent marking a lot, worth keeping an eye on though just to make sure there's nothing wrong there, hard to say maybe if it's not your own ham but if he seems fine in himself otherwise probably nothing wrong.
They can get wet red patches underneath if they sleep on pee too so maybe something to check on.
