Yep mites. I've had success with Revolution for Kittens and a strict cleaning routine. Everything in it's cage must be cleaned daily and cage liners are your best bet for bedding. You can use fleece blankets and change them out daily. I used 7 (one for each day) and did laundry once a week. Good luck, mites can be stressful for everyone but I am glad you are trying to do something about it.

Edit: Check out this thread viewtopic.php?f=5&t=2628 for dosage of the rev. and consult your vet if there's one who sees hedgies near you. Also search the forum for more advice on mites.

Only a vet can diagnose for sure with a skin scraping and microscope. Mites are teeeeeny, little round white dots barely visible by the naked eye. Lice I believe and more elongated in shape like a grain of rice and bigger than mites. Mites are fairley common in hedgies and curable but it takes persistance and time. I think they can get it from wood shaving bedding or other bedding/anything that has been contaminated with mites. Which is why using fleece material is a better option for lining the cage. Not only can you keep it clean (and mite free) but after the initial investment, you don't have to keep buying more like you do with shavings.

Where did you get him? Does he have a name?

Does he have a wheel? Without a wheel they will try to climb out the cage all nite long and will smear poop on the walls.
