Default Red skin. Looks like a rash. Please help :(

Hi. So yesterday I noticed that my hedgehog, chico had really red skin behind his ear. His activities are still normal. He is eating slightly lesser but still really excited when I give him his mealworms. I find about 3-4 quills falling off a day. His poop is dark brown but recently I notice that after pooping his usual coloured poop, at times he will poop dark green coloured poop. I'm worried. Anyone know what is going on?

It looks like it could be a skin infection. If it lasts more than a day or two I would take him to the vet.
