Default Help me pleaseee

I was giving my hedgehog a bath tonight and it’s been a week since his last bath. This time I noticed a blob on his neck and I tried to wash it off (I thought it was poop, he poops on his wheel and runs through it) it was NOT poop at alllll. It was a scab like thing covering what I can only describe as a puss pocket from **** and it smells sooo bad. I flushed it with a spray bottle and water and I have some antibacterial spray for pets I got called vetricin it was highly rated but I didn’t think that would cut it this was really bad so I covered his face and sprayed it out with peroxide and then rinsed it is a HOLE. Like a marble could fit in this thing and I am so scared. I can’t seem to find anything even close to relating to this. No explanation of where it came from or how the heck it got so bad so fast! I’m baffled and I am of course taking him to the vet ASAP but I am freaking out I’m going to flush it every hour tonight and tomorrow until I get him to the vet. Is there anything anyone knows of that would help him even if it’s as simple as something I could give him for pain? I know it’s got to be uncomfortable 😫

It's a good thing you're taking him to the vet. I have done a ton of research and I have never seen this before so honestly, I don't know what exactly to do. Just make sure you get him to the vet as soon as possible. Again, I'm definitely not an expert so don't take my word as fact, but I might think about taking his wheel out tonight so he doesn't potentially get poop in there. I wish you the best of luck
