Unhappy I think my hedgehog might have mites??

I think my Ellis might have mites?? I took a look at him the other day and he had a bloody spot underneath his quills. After taking a closer look I realized that he had two large dark bump on him and a few other small bloody spots. I'm extremely worried because I know he is in pain. After doing a bit of research I think that mites might be a possibility. He also has tattered ears that I've been putting the vaseline like aquaphor on for the past few nights.

Please take Ellis to the vet, they can do a skin scrape to test for mites. Please ensure your vet never gives your hedgehog Ivermectin for mites -- it is fatal for hedgehogs. Instead, Revolution is a good mite treatment.

Does Ellis get baths? Is his skin dry or is he scratching really hard?

Yes I give him a bath every other time I clean his cage so maybe once every 2 or 3 weeks? He scratches a lot and his skin is a little dry
