Default Severe Quill loss

Hello I am new here and very grateful for this forum I’ve learned a lot. My hedgy is around two years old she was losing a few quill so I took her to the vet and they did a mite treatment just in case. It’s been two weeks and now she is losing about 15 quills a day, it was at notice before but now it definitely is. There’s also huge skin flakes in her fleece bag. I thought it was dry skin so I used a dropper and dropped a few drops of olive oil on her skin that usually helps but this time it had not. Help friends!

I would take her back to the vet & see if they can check for skin infections. Sometimes fungal infections can cause skin that looks extremely dry, as well as the quill loss.
