Default please help

So my hedgie seems to have a variety of ailments and I don't know if they're related or not. She's about 9 months old for the record. Shes been pretty lethargic, even for herself. Her cage and her belly are nice and warm. But even her wheel is untouched.

The other day I noticed she smelled strange, like she does after I give her a bath but much stronger. I cleaned her cage hoping it would help but no luck. Tonight I gave her a bath, she's still stinky.

Finally, the last couple of days I've noticed she's eating less. At first I thought I just gave her too much, but last night I gave her a few pieces of kibble less and her dish is still pretty full. Although she had no problem eating her reward mealworms after the grooming session tonight.

Any Input welcome!!

What does she smell like? Can you think of anything that smells similar? I would head to the vet because weird smell + off food + less activity definitely sounds like something wrong. She could have a skin infection or something else going on.
