Default My Hedgehog has extremely dry skin?

I know it's not mites as he has none of the symptoms & I have checked for them. But he suffers from dry skin which causes him to scratch occasionally. I tried bathing him with oatmeal which has seem to make the problem worse & it is like a snow storm when he lays on his back when previously it was not this bad! Is this a normal reaction after the oatmeal? Any suggestions on how to help my Hoglet?
