Mange is a type of mites. If a guinea pig gets stressed they flare up.

Mites i've never had them so far but i have had an outbreak of mange twice. My guinea pigs lived at vets for 2 summers as they kept getting mange and there was no reason for them to be getting it as good diet and well looked after, it turned out to be stress from a neighbour looking after them whilst i was on holiday her dogs stressed them out and caused mange to develop so i don't leave them anymore unless my parents can look after them and they haven't had it since!
