Unhappy Ear drainage?

My 4 year old hedgehog Otis has been healthy his whole life, up until now. He is still behaving totally normally, but now has a terrible drainage from his ears. He didn't have it a week ago. Does anyone recognize what this is? Should I just clean with water and see what happens? Hydrogen peroxide? Bactroban? Neosporin? Call a vet?

I have attached a photo of his ear. If there is already a thread with good information, please just link me to it.

That looks like an ear infection. You can clean up around the ear with warm water but he needs to see a vet as soon as possible.
