Default Strange spot of blood

I noticed today that my hedgie has a circle of blood (a little smaller than a dime) underneath her front right leg? This is the first I've noticed of this and I'm not sure what it is. I'm worried it may be an infection. Is this common? She's never had this happen before. Any advice would be great.

I would try washing it with plain water and see if you can get a better look at the spot and see what it is - an open wound, a sore, a scrape, etc. It could also be an irritated spot she's chewed at or something like that. It may be something that needs vet attention, or it might be something that could heal on its own if it's kept clean, just depends.

I tried washing it off but it didn't come off. It seems more like a sore than anything.
