Default Red Spots

Prixie has red spots on her quills/spines/whatever they are actually called. Not sure if this is part of the quilling process or not but she doesn't seem phased if we touch these areas. Any ideas on what this can be?

Has she had any red treats lately like watermelon, strawberries, etc.? It almost looks like she's annointed something red on the quills. Or has she annointed at all lately? Maybe she pricked her tongue and it's the blood from that.

Yes! We tried out about an inch and a half of a red bell pepper last night. I read that red bell peppers were ok for hedgies. Will she be ok as long as we don't give her those anymore? Thanks for the info!

She will be fine, that is just something weird that hedgehogs do! No worries. They like to make a foam and spread whatever (new smells) all over themselves.

You can keep giving them to her if you want! They haven't hurt her at all, it's just a silly thing that hedgies do, like shmurciakova said. Next time she might skip the annointing & just eat them since she's had them once...or they may end up being one of those things she decides to annoint to every time she has some. Either way, nothing to worry about, and just something to keep in mind for next time so you don't worry about the red spots again. Glad it was an easy answer!
