What do you class as the base? To me that would be under his nose.

very hard to tell, it is a good sign no weepy eyes tho, is it the skins which is lumpy too?or just hard fur? could be hes put his nose into something he shouldnt? or that hes scratched it...hmmm.... chelseas was a pimple sized singular nodule about size of biro end accross and was at the v in the corner i can send you a pic if you want but im sure it can be diff in different buns would get checked out and onto baytril just to be safe xx

Hope it's nothng serious. :( Could he have been bitten? by an insect I mean, that could make it swell.

Is there a scab or cut under the fur? If its a bite there should be some obvious skin penetration.

If there are no unusual lumps or pimply type bumps on the skin itself you can rule out myxi. It does sound as though hes got some substance on his fur which has dried...could it be sap from a tree or plant?

I was gonna say is he just grubby?? Lily my foster bun had a grubby nose when I got her which made her nose look odd

Have you tried washing it?

XMissySJx

yeh it wont come off its really hard

Washing it won't work, as the fur is matted. Can you shave off that little bit of fur gently w/ one of those professional shaver that hair stylist uses. Since the fur needs to breathe, when it is matted, it's no good anyway. Once you shave it, you can see what's happening.

I reckon its slug slime. I have found a couple of my buns with hard dried patches of fur spent ages wondering what on earth it was until I found a slimy stowaway in the hutch.

'slimy stowaway' lol!!!

well i jus cleaned out the hutch and theres no stowaway in there...but he could have escaped! his nose is 100% normal today

i was just being paranoid:oops:
