The warm baths are ok but mice generally dont need them often and they can create ear inffections and get chilled rather fast. However in hot summers I would occassionall let mine just "swim" in the sink and bundle them good after wards. However do not use soap. It can hurt them if they ingest any of it. If there are lunmo then it is more than liekly abcesses. Which is infected wounds you cn go to a vet for antibiotic to help control the infection. However I hve adopted a few mice at times and the abcesses would "pus out before I could get them to a vet. So in those situations I would gently pick up the mouse and clean with diluted alcohol and a q-tip, WHen the abcess is ready it'll just pop you do not need to pick at it at all. Once it is clean of all the puss reclean it at least twcie a day for a few days. I suggest getting yesterdays news cat litter without baking soda. And keep the cage very clean until the wounds are clear you can also use (clean paper bedding without dyes and such.

If it is a male mouse than more than likely the fighting was due to simply being males. It's not about introducing them correctly. Most males will always fight and sometimes fight to the death with other males. But females are colony creatures. :)
