Default Outer ear Inflammation/Scabbing?

I’ve noticed this little red/black spot on the top of my little guy’s ear. I took a look inside of his ears and there doesn’t seem to be any puss or anything out of the ordinary. I realize that he could have done the damage by simply scratching it but I also know how prone hedgies are to mites, especially regarding the ear. I’ve recognized he’s shedding quills but there aren’t any patches or bald spots on him, just quills lying in his cage. Has anyone had any experience with an issue like this? I plan on taking him to the vet if it doesn’t get better. We’ve been rubbing a small amount of oil on it to assist in the possible healing process. If anyone can help I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
