    Hello, I have 2 12 week old baby boy Chinchilla's, I have recently in the last day or 2 noticed that one has gone slightly bald on one side of his nose. When I first saw it it was kind of bright and looked saw, the next day, (today) this morning it didn't look too bad but looked dry and had a small pin point scab on top. I have spoken to the place I brought them both from about 2 weeks ago and she seems to think he has ringworm/fungel infection. She gave me a spray treatment to use which I have already used twice on him already today. Since then I have made sure everything in their cage is cleaned with disinfectant and changed their floor to wood rather than shavings just in case it's an allergic reaction. I have also stripped and sprayed my entire room and Hoover as I have a dog too.

    I have uploaded a pic of the first day I saw it.

    And further information would really help as I'm really worried I or my dog or anyone else can catch it.
