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?

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
