I noticed my black and white banded had thinning hair on face/back of the neck, and on further inspection, I found little white dots at the base of her fur. I checked my other mouse (who's also balding) and I forgot to look for the little white specks at the base, but I did find a red spot next to her eye. What parasite is this? Are there any home treatments?

The way to be sure about skin conditions is to take mousie to the doctor. A vet will be able to take the appropriate observations and specimens, run the tests, identify the culprit (parasite? bacteria? yeast? contact dermatitis? food allergy? overgrooming? more serious lesions?), and formulate a treatment plan.

I would second a vet visit as this could be a few different things and the wrong treatment won’t fix the problem.

Is the red spot on your second mouse like the spot on this PEW baby? These red spots are there on many mice but aren’t anything to worry about!
