Question Ear Looks red

Hi, new to the forums not to the site. Noticed today for our 9 month old hedgie one ear appears to be a bit red. No other symptoms appetite is fine, eyes bright moving around normal nose (sniffing) activity. Is this ear wax, symptom of the cold weather heating season or something else? Advice appreciated.

Is it the ear flap that's red or the ear canal? If it's the canal then that isn't a normal sign of ear wax or cold weather. A red ear canal is most often the sign of an ear infection.
