Red Nose Gerbils

Both of our gerbils have red noses and i dont know why. anyone else have the same problem? we have carefresh bedding but that didnt seem to bother them at the petstore or anytime in the past week... it is only around the nostrils, the rest is pink. nothing comes off when we wipe and its not mucous. could it just be how they are? they dont seem to pay any attention to it.

They could be rubbing their noses against the bars of the cage.

It could be a litter allergy or just them rubbing their noses against things, moving things around, etc. My gerbils use a mix of Carefresh, aspen, and yesterdays news with bits of newspaper. They love it. My 3 gerbils I had in the 4th grade always had red noses from chewing on the bars. But now since my current are in a tank, that isn't a problem. Animals can get allergies to certain things, for example our rabbit had an allergy to aspen bedding (it made her sneeze) so her cage is just lined with a towel.
