Help, health advice needed!

I have two male rats, Milo and Asher, they're both alittle over a year old, and they've never had any health issues in the past.
Recently one of them attacked the other, it wasn't serious and I was able to heal them on my own. But I separated them into different cages so that it wouldn't happen again and ever since they've had all sorts of problems; they've been lethargic, they holding their bodies really low to the ground, Asher has been throwing up, and I think Milo has too but I don't know for sure. And now they've got little scabs all over them that I think may have something to do with lice

I know that the best thing to do is to take them in to see the vet, but I can't afford to at the moment so I was wondering if anyone has -any- kind of advice that I could use in the meantime. Especially about the vomiting, that really scares me.

I would definately take them to the vet. Have you called to make sure how much it would cost for the vet to see them? With some corners cut and some financial juggling it's actually not that hard to get together a basic vet visit fee. Take them A.S.A.P or they very well may die very soon.
