Unhappy Inflamed Scent Gland?

Hi, I have noticed my hamster's scent gland becoming more swollen and inflamed. Initially i thought he was just grooming himself but lately i think he started biting at it. I'm not entirely sure if he is in pain for there is not much of a change of behavior nor does he squeal when I try to pick him up, even when i try to swab it with saline. There is significant change in his gland (size and colour) compared to 1 month ago.

I see lots of posts on crusty or clogged glands, and I'm not even sure how a normal scent gland is supposed to look like, but I don't think his looks normal?

Do I need to be worried? Please help!
