Default Bumps on face and head (pics included)


I have many issues with my hedgehog over the past few months. It all began with mites and now he has a bacterial/fungal infection.The vet send samples away to a lab, I have a fungal wash (cats & dogs) from the vets that I use twice a week.

He seems to get a little better but never fully and then he looks worse again. I have been using this stuff for a month.He has become more active and friendly with this wash.

He also keeps itching his belly and top of legs until he bleeds, that also keeps differing in severity.

I starting to think he's scratching his face and stopping it from healing.

Any advice?
I do have a vet appointment coming up however, I have spent a fortune and would like some other advise as I am loosing faith in the vets.

PICTURES: First 3 taken today, one on pink cover a few weeks ago.
IMPORTANT: My old flat had mold, I have now been in a new flat for a week. (could be relevant)
Thanks Chloe
