Default Itchy!

We have had Mz. Henrietta since Wednesday, shes always itching, especially her quills. I was cuddling her last night while wearing a black sweatshirt and there was dandruff alll over me! Shes 2.5 and just got weaned off her babies this week. What do you guys think I should do? Is it her being nervous? I was thinking a bath with some baby oatmeal shampoo.

Try a bath with the oatmeal, it could just be really bad dry skin. I also put a few drops of flax seed oil on their back after their bath, and a few drops on their food. If that doesn't clear it up, a trip to the vet is in order in case of mites.
