Well I just got back from the vet. After taking a skin scrape and a skin tape, my vet said that it certainly looked like a skin infection. She didn't find any mites, but she went ahead and put Revolution her skin and we have another appointment in two weeks. More Revolution is planned. We got antibiotics (it's a banana marshmallow flavored goop) that are to be given twice a day. Looks like I'm gonna be having some fun with antibiotics and a grumpy hedgie! But overall, she was very well-behaved. All her fleece is being heavily washed, and everything was scrubbed with hot water/bleach solution. Sorry for the long post, I just wanted to cover everything.
