Default Hedgehog acne?

I've had my hedgehog for about a week and she is 9 weeks old. The other day there was a bubble on top of her right arm. And it kinda freaked me out. It's white. It looks like it might be filled with something. I checked it today and now it's got kind of a red purple spot on it. She seems to be acting fine. She still runs on her wheel. And eats normally and drinks normally. She does keep her arm tucked in when she is just chilling. I have plans to take her to the vet and I spoke to the breeder I got her from and he said it sounds like hedgehog acne. Im just looking for some input. Please help. I'll post pictures.

Sorry I can't get the picture to open but it sounds like it could be an infection. A vet visit would be a good idea.
