Default Accidentally got syringe medicine in fur

I have been having to give my chinchilla antibiotics and pain medication through a syringe to his mouth, and I accidentally got a little bit of it on the top of his head on the top of his fur. I quickly gave him a dust bath and now it is dried/crusted. What do I do? How do I safely get it off, or will it work its way out?

You can try to comb it out with a fine toothed comb or pull it apart with your fingers. If it's bothering him you can try cleaning it off with a unscented organic wet wipe or damp cloth and comb it out as it softens. Otherwise it will wear off him over time.
