Piggy (long haired) likes to lay in pee! Please helP!

My long haired guinea pig (Piggy) likes to lay in her pee! Her entire bottom side gets all wet and then becomes hard. I give her baths in luke warm water... Then I brush her but she hates when people tough her rear end! Anyone have ideas on how to keep her clean? All advice is welcom!

Keep her back end trimmed is how I keep my long haired pig dry. I just trim back there and let the rest of her grow out. Hope that helps.

I have a white pig who does this and its always on the right side of her rump. I keep her trimmed as crzy4piggers said she does. I also sometimes apply a balm to the skin to prevent urine scald, because she really seems to be just peeing while laying down, pehaps to lazy or too old to get up to pee all the time. Her age, when I got her from a woman in Oklahoma, was unverifiable, so she may be quite old.
