My piggy barely eats after antibiotics.

I am guessing many over the counter human antifungal medications should be safe and effective if this is a fungus. She suggested Revolution to cover her bases. So try the antifungal first and the antiparasitic (Revolution) if you see signs it might be mites.

As has been pointed out, a fungus is the more likely.

Hi! I just saw the comment, thank you so much for the info. Harry is doing well. His scab healed and happy.

Another thing I want to ask is if there is a way for Harry to eat more vitamin C.
I feed him mini sweet bell peppers (usually yellow and red), chopped. But lately, he is not a fan of them.
So I give him a vitamin C tablet from Amazon, and tangerines. I wonder if there is any other veggies for vitamin C?
Thank you in advance.
Hope everyone is safe and well.

The peppers are a great choice. Fresh greens in general should have some vitamin C. And fresh, high quality guinea pig pellets will have vitamin C in them too. Giving a tablet from Amazon is a good idea. There are also drops that can be put on anything he scarfs up. I would look at vegetables as a source rather than fruits like tangerines.

There is a sortable chart here:
