DO NOT FEED HIM ULTRA BITES!!!!
If it is this, http://www.petco.com/product/14408/8-in ... llas-.aspx , it has raisins in it, which are poisonous and will lead to kidney failure!
Do you see where there could be any bleeding?

Does your hedgie have a wheel? if so does it look like there might be any blood on it? Have you checked him over carefully including toes? There's no way for us to say if he's hurt or not since we can't see him. Where exactly did you see the red? You say its all over "it" but what's it??

The Ultra Bites are dangerous and shouldn't be fed, either return them to the store of if you can't do that, then throw them out.

Thanks for the fast reply,I havnt held him after I saw the the reddish color,ultra bites contain cranberrys it says,maybe that is the cause but i just looked at his wheel,and there is reddish color on the side of the wheel going around,its hard to say if its smeared dumpings,or if its blood. Now i know not to use these ultra bites. Here is a picture of somethingthat was in the cage..

Also, the sides of that container need to be covered... they could have caused the cut, too.

oh geez...if it is bleeding still apply light pressure to it with a tissue or something momentarily then see if you can dip it in flour to stop the bleeding if it won't after applying a bit of pressure. It probably hurts him a lot so careful

I've not had this happen before so just taking a guess at what I would do. Hopefully someone will come along to advise further.

Likely you will need to remove the wheel so the toe can heal and keep it very clean with foot baths for a while.

Should i take him back to the place i got him from, they told me everything to buy and it looks like they really didnt know what they were talking about. I did some research and they gave me a metal wheel, maybe his foot got caught in that, they also gave me those snacks mentioned in the first post so maybe he isnt as healthy as they told me. I will go there tomorrow with him and see what they have to say, and for now i took out his wheel and put his old house( a shoe box) which had blood on it also. But should he bleed that much, is ge going to die of bloodloss? There was a quater sized blood puddle on the floor where i set him down after his soak. It doesnt look like its letting up and he constandly is scratching things with it. Will he loose all blood?!
