One of my 8 week old female rats has became very swollen right underneath her tail. Could it be that she is in heat or something along those lines? Or could it be that something is wrong?

She didn't have it when we first got her then we all of a sudden noticed it and it's starting to get very dark. This is the best picture I could get.

Oh the dark colour doesn't look healthy. Could be an abscess perhaps? I would take her to the vet to get that looked at - if it is an infection they might give you a course of antibiotics.
