Exclamation Hamster Fur Query?

My Female hamster has recently (over the past 2 weeks) Grown long patches of hair. One place is either side of her tail, and the other is behind her neck. I read somewhere that Female hamsters should not grow hair and could be a sign that she may be male or ill. I can't pick her up to have a look underneath as we are not able to handle her. I have tried feeding her a treat up high so she climbs up to get it to have a look but cant see anything at all. Could you help please? The fur is about an inch longer than the rest of her fur.

Thankyou.

Hi,
Finally, hamsters have their own natural oils to maintain the condition of their fur and will spend a long time grooming. So I would not recommend bathing as they ...
