Default Smelly Ear Problem

For the past few days, my hedgie's left ear has had some brown crusty gunk around it. I gave him a bath yesterday and carefully cleaned around it, finding a tiny little scab like he had scratched too hard. Today when I took him out it gave off a foul odor that I can only describe as cow manure. I think this probably deserves a vet visit, but I would like to know if anyone has encountered this before? I can't see any obvious drainage from the ear besides the crust around it. He's also acting normal.
