hmmm ...dunno....i think a trip to the vet might be in order.
Your vet would be able to tell you and be able to check him out at the same time to see if he has any underlying condition

Try rubbing a bit of olive oil into her skin. Make sure it's rubbed in well or take a towel and wipe off the access. Olive oil is good for their skin...It might just be because of winter and the heat in your house.

What kind of heat do you have and where does it come from? If you feel that your skin is dry too you might need a humidifier.

I agree with Missy.Try using some olive oil.Hairless rats sometimes have skin problems,so just make sure her skin is moist and not dried out.

A vet will tell you exactly what kind of lotion or creams to use, olive oil will be good for now, but if you get a proper lotion it may soothe his skin and have extra vitamins and stuff in it to keep him baby soft. They will recommend stuff to use, or give you a prescription. A reputable vet knows best!!
