I guess as long as he's happy and comfortable & won't get too cold (I know he's in a temperature-controlled environment at all times) then there's not really much else you could do. After all, you can't treat it/cure it, so I've been told - at least for the moment. As you said, maybe a new exciting treatment will emerge sometime soon.

Coupla years gone by...hope Oscar is still well. I was a "member" many years ago and loved the advice I received. My Sam is now about 15 years old and still happily building a home for his anticipated mate. He uses chopsticks, and I can recommend his construction skills. I am back here because I noted a redness under his wing, and wondered what to put on it, if anything. He has to be coaxed to go in bath, and spritzing him does no good to the underarms. Just to show how bright these Quakers are, I tell folks the story of when he was on my shoulder and I was telling him, quite seriously, it was time he had a bath, or pretty soon his underarms would be smelly. He laughed. Seems they have a sense of humour, too! Be glad to hear from anyone. Stay safe.
Hi and welcome back I am not sure what the redness could be, you might want to ask your vet. Our house is dry during the winter and I have a humidifier on in the same room as Casey. Maybe if you had that it would help if the redness is due to being dry. Neat that Sam loves to build. Casey only likes chewing up wood Hope you can figure out Sam’s wing.
