Sounds like mites. You need to get some Revolution to treat the mites.

Hmmm she probually has mites or flease maybe lice...(depends where you live)
you will need a treatment firt check her fur on the tummy and see if you can spot any?
it hard curing a hedgie on your own from fleas or mites because of there spikes/quills
if you cant do much take her to an EXOTIC vet and see if they have anything for her
if she doesnt have mite.fleas take her to a EXOTIC vet anyway because who knows whats wrong..the vet!

hope i helped xxxxxx good luck i hope your hedgehog feels better xx
