Default My Hedgehog isn't eating

Pumpkin is about 9 months old (I don't know her exact age as the breeder I got her from was a little sketchy) but around August after we had separated her from her unexpected litter she began to lose fur and quills. I thought she was allergic to something so I changed her diet and what I cleaned her bedding with. The problem went away but she still has really dry skin. She became less active and ate and drank less until one day she stopped eating all together. She wouldn't eat any treats and dropped 15 grams. I took her to the vet and they didn't know what was wrong and prescribed a general medicine for infections. She has been on it for 6 days and still isn't eating. I've had to force feed her for a while now. Every night she eats a little kibble and drinks water but not nearly enough. Does anyone know what's wrong?

Update: I also just noticed she is making a weird noise that sounds like a kind of click huff thing that sounds like popping
