Guinea pigs are not filthy, but they do have bacteria just like most everything. I've had many creatures and been bitten many times. Wash it thourouly and put disinfectant on it and wrap it. That will take away the chances of something else getting into it. If it really looks bad and is getting a lot worse than it isgetting better go to the doctor.
