Exclamation Hedgehog has a scab all around his nose

I came home and I went to check on my hedgie whenever I looked her head was proped up in the corner of her cage and there was blood everywhere. Her toenail had fallen out so that could be the reason for the blood but her nose is really concerning me. Is this common? What should I do?

Can you post a picture? I'm a little confused - his head was propped up, and there's a scab around his nose?

Do you mean she was sleeping with her head stuck up in the corner of the cage? If so, yeah, oddly enough some of them find that comfortable.

How did her toenail fall out? What type of wheel does she have, or are there any spots in the cage she could have gotten a nail caught?
