    I have a 4 week old lionhead with swollen genitals. She has been peeing all over herself. I gave her a bath today. I believe she may have been stung by a bee or wasp. What can I do?

    I would soak in epsom salt bath....if you think it is a sting from a insect.

    Poor baby!
    Is she on the ground? Or in a cage?
    Rabbits can get 'hutch burn' but I've never heard of such a young one getting it...
    Be careful giving her a bath, putting a rabbit under water can kill them!
    You can use a waterless shampoo or a washcloth to keep her clean.
    @Bunnylady help!

    The flying bugs have been horrible this year. We've had so much rain that they are trying to find shelter wherever they can.

    They are in a cage. She usually sits in the pile of hay, she's the smallest of 4. None of her siblings are like this. Only her back feet, tail and bits were in water. The urine had dried to her hair so I had to massage it loose.

    Oh okay...
    I'm just not sure what would cause that!
    Are her genitals hot to the touch? Any blood or other discharge?

    That's why I thought it might be a bee or wasp. I've never had something like this happen to them.
    It is swollen and hot. No blood or discharge. And the only smell is urine.

    Poor thing!
    I don't have a clue other than what you think about the sting!
    Maybe put some silver gel on it? It's the only thing I can think of
