sitting on/rubbing tail hair short and gone :(

heya

buck seems to be sitting on his tail, or rubbing it, on the walls, its gotten to the state of the hair being less than an inch, some hairs about 1CM or less, ive been told to put baby oil on it, but that doesnt seem to be working, and he keeps getting the tail guard off...

any suggestions?

i dont think its worms, as he has been wormed recently and didnt have very many at all thank goodness.

Thanks :) Leigh and Buck!!!

yes , there is somebody...
if the skin is getting raw, I would suggest a combination of hemerhoid cream and diaper rash cream. It will help reduce pain and itching. As he will stop rubbing, the hair should stop falling out

Make sure he stays on a regular worming schedule, and keep his sheath cleaned! If he's rubbing his tail and it's not worms, I'm willing to bet that his sheath is dirty.
