Default 2 separate hogs with injuries

I have a male and female who are housed separately but somehow both managed to injure themselves.

My male, Emilio, I noticed has blood on his forehead in his quills. He's my less tame one so it's hard to get a good look. Almost looks like a mass, but could be a thick scab. He had a towel in his cage that might have gotten quills caught cause I didn't notice it frayed. Towel has been out a few weeks though, so Idk if I just never noticed till now.

My female, Hazel has what looks to be a puncture on her neck/chest area. Not very big, but still concerning.

The two are never together so I have no idea what happened. Of course I notice on a Friday night with a holiday weekend, so I have no clue when a vet will be open to even see them. Luckily no one (besides me) seems to be in any distress.

Should I be doing or not doing anything till a vet sees them? I'm still new to hedgie ownership so any advice or tips are appreciated.

Try to keep the areas clean and dry and watch for any signs of infection (swelling, redness, discharge).
