Exclamation Strange Lump After Handling Hedgie?

Yesterday, I held Nougat and she curled in a ball and prickled up. Then this morning I noticed a small, weird lump on my hand where I got poked by one of her quills. Is this serious? What should I do?

Sounds like a hive or allergic reaction to the hedgie or whatever was on the quill. Nothing to worry about. Just wash the area and take a Benadryl if you are really worried and it should go away.

Yeah, it should be fine as long as you make sure you wash it. Maybe give her a bath to get whatever bothered you off and clean her cage.
