Default Re: weird scab on my hedgie's face. HELP!!!!

I would say keep it clean and a close eye on it over the next day or two to see if it gets better or worse. You can try a little dab of plain neosporin or polysporin (just NOT the 'pain relief' kind) now to help with the healing. If it doesn't clear up or looks worse you should take him in, might need an antibiotic to help it out. Cancer is always a possibility, but a scratch seems most likely. Take him to a vet if you don't see improvement, or if you are really concerned then follow your instinct and take him in to get looked at and tested.
Can you try and post a picture?
Hope your little one heals up fast!
