Default Re: Can someone identify this sore on our hamster?

It does look nasty. You definitely need to see a vet for diagnosis and treatment. I can't quite tell where it is but it's very round. Maybe ringworm (fungal infection) or a burst abscess as souffle says. At 2 years old also he is very elderly and it may be something like a tumour. But only a vet can diagnose. He will almost certainly need to be on same pain relief (Metacam/Meloxicam is usually prescribed). And something for the sore possibly, depending on what it is.
