Default Dandruff in quills?

Hello to everyone this is my first post here.

I have a hedgehog, she is 10 months, and few days ago we detect something like a dandruff in her quills. We decide to make a bath and brush it and it disappears immediatrly. But it has appeared again and I don't know what is it. I attach you a picture on the following link.


Does anyone know something about this?

Thank you very much

I would advise giving your hedgehog a bath in Aveeno Baby Oatmeal Powder, available at Target. It does wonders for dry skin on your hedgehog. Your hedgehog also might just be quilling and that's why, but if she starts acting any differently I'd go to a vet. And if you're still worried if the dandruff won't go away after the Oatmeal bath, I'd go to a vet also. Is your hedgie itching? If she is then it's probably dry skin. Rubbing some coconut oil on their feet also helps hope this helped!
