I had hoped that no one would ever have to go through this again. This is indicative of a major staph infection from the mother rabbit, not neccessarily Pasteurella as the mother had it. And there is no treatment but culling.

I had to destroy all the babies, as two had died on me as I posted last year. The mother was the carrier, and had to be put down.
The babies were over 10 days old, had the pustules in the sames places you described, which erupted in wet sores within a couple of days, progressively sluggish and they were feverish and too warm to the touch.

I have not had this infection come back.

Sorry, I can't give any better news.
