I honestly don't know much about bacterial infections with hedgies, but that is a LOT of quills. I would follow up with a vet maybe just put in a phone call so you don't have to pay to go and see if they'd give you some free advice because that looks concerning to me, but it could just be a side effect of the medication? A medical professional's advice is best when it comes to your baby on this in my opinion.
