Exclamation My gerbil is sick

So for the past 2 months my female gerbil has been sick. She is not even 1 year old yet. At first she lost all of the fur on her nose and then her nose started scabbing and it just got worse. and i just thought it was because of the bedding so i got carefresh bedding but her nose didnt heal. so i just thought it would go away but then she lost the fur on her feet. and now her right eye has been closed for 2 weeks and it didnt look bad but now she has all red around her eye and it has crust so i dont know what is wrong with her...... Do i take her to the vet or can i take care of it at hom? PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Personally I would take her to the vet, it almost sounds like a skin problem such as mange, or mites. The vet should be able to help and prescribe medication
