Default Yellow spots on cheeks

I’ve had my hedgehog for a year and recently she’s started to get flakey ears and yellow spots (pictures attached) on her cheeks. I know a lot of hedgehogs get flakey ears and I’m already treating them but I frankly don’t know what to do with the yellow spots. I’ve tried to take them off using q tips and toothbrushes but my hedgehog won’t let me touch her face. (Sorry the pictures are blurry she just won’t stop moving)

If its just dirt build up, try taking a warm wet wash cloth and using it to clean her face. It may take several days in a row to get any improvement, but quite often when you try to wipe their face with it, they will push against it to move your hand/clothe away from them. It often works enough to clean their face.

I often see this with those that anoint a lot as the froth/food will dry and cause some build up.
