if alopecia is the same in guinea pigs as it is in humans i don't believe he would be in any immediate danger. he will not die from it. but you should try to find out what caused it. i would separate him. watch him closely for anything else unusual. take him to the vet if you think its serious. could you post a picture? it would help give an idea of how serious it is or if it really is alopecia at all.

i really dont know anything about guinea pigs. i hope that someone who has experience with them would give some input. as i only know about alopecia in humans

Is he eating and otherwise acting like normal? How many other GPs do you have? Are they OK?

does the area where he seems to have it look inflamed/red or anything? or does it look like normal healthy skin other than the hair loss?

thats okay, honestly i think will be fine, i would watch him for any other unusual symptoms, but it could have been from anything. he could have just itched himself too much or something :p
