Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
Where abouts on his face? Are you able to send a photo?
That does look sore, any patches anywhere else? It is a odd location. Normally sore patches around a rabbits face often happen around the eyes. It appears as though there must be an underlying irritation either due to trauma or a possibility that we have notes. Cheyletiela is a common parasite in rabbits that causes focal alopecia (hair loss) so I would ensure you’re up to date with parasite control. Otherwise I would bathe it with warm water and apply Savlon to the area- just a thin layer. If it continues to get worse over the cause of the next 24-48hrs then I would advise taking to local vets as we can prescribe a more specific cream to relieve the redness
Did you manage to apply the savlon ok? Another option would be Vaseline to act as a barrier to help prevent it getting worse
Good, glad he’s been seen to. You’re welcome, hope it settles down now.
Have you recently treated him for mites? You can give him a warm water bathe to relieve the itching a little.
