Default New Owner-sore on ear

I hate to jump on here and ask a question straight away but I’m a nervous new owner. I’ve had Emerson a week today. He was born Jan 6th of 2018 and he is quilling very badly. Yesterday I noticed his left ear had a red bump on it. It looks like a sore. The rest of his ear is puffy. I contacted the breeder and she said it looked like it had been stabbed by a quill but it should heal, just watch for infection. I put a hedgehog skin soother on it last night. Today at his bath I noticed he has another bump now on the front of his ear. I just picked up neosporen and will be putting that on it. I just want to confirm that I am 1-doing the right thing and 2-that being stabbed by a quill can result in this bad of a sore.
Thank you.

I would suggest a vet visit, honestly. With how red it looks, it may already be infected, especially with the puffiness. Better to get him in now & have it looked at than wait for it to get worse & harder to treat.
