Default My hedgehog has developed red bumps on the top of is head and on his side! Is it some

Hello, my three month old Hedgehog named Ricco has developed a few red bumps that look inflated at the top of his head and on his side. He eats and drinks normally and there hasn't been any change apart from the fact that he has swollen red bumps... They developed yesterday and when I brought him to the vet they didn't say anything... I have a suspicion it could be his new bedding causing irritation but I'm not sure... PLEASE HELP!!

They almost look like possible insect bites or something, but I'm not positive. What kind of bedding are you using now & what were you using before? It might be worth going back to the old bedding to see if that helps. The vet didn't have anything at all to say about the spots? Does your hedgehog seem at all bothered by them, like they're itchy or hurt?
