I can't offer any advice. What is a&d?

You can use regular strength polysporin. No pain relief and not extra strength.

Unless there is another A&D, A&D is a diaper rash ointment. Ingredients: Active Ingredients: Contains: Petrolatum (53.4% - Skin Protectant), Lanolin (15.5% - Skin Protectant)

Inactive Ingredients: Cod Liver Oil (contains Vitamin A & Vitamin D), Fragrance, Light Mineral Oil, Microcrystalline Wax, Paraffin

I don't remember if it has any smell or not, but fragrance worries me a bit. Hedgehogs can be super sensitive to anything that has an odor, which could cause the hedgehog to want to chew at the spot more.

Neosporin/polysporin, regular strength (absolutely no pain relief), a small amount dabbed on the cut with a q-tip would be much better.

I wouldn't recommend it...A&D is an all-purpose skin protectant and soother that does have a rather strong smell. I would try to find some polysporin instead. ^_^

My vet considered that once for my hedgie, but ultimately decided to go another route as she figured hedgie might try and lick it given the scent.
