Default Hedgehog eye problem

Ive had my hedgehog for about two months now, and ive noticed inflamation around her eye. It's like a pink fatty ring, and some days it's worse than others. It was like it when i first got her and i didnt think much of it because the owner didnt say anything about it . I was beginning to think it was the bedding so i switched it. Is there anything else i should consider?

I not an expert on medical problems in hedgies but I do know one thing, If you notice anything abnormal in your hedgehog, you should take them to the vet as soon as humanly possible. Medical problems in hedgehogs can go from bad to worse very quickly. I have learned this the hard way.

I agree on the vet. Does her eye look bulged on that side?
