Exclamation Help! Red bump by whiskers

My hedgehog Pap has this red bump near his whiskers (See attachment). I do not what it is and I am hoping someone knows. I am hoping its not a tumor or something serious.

It might just be an infected follicle. I would keep an eye on it. If it gets worse or your hedgehog seems to be in pain, go to the vet.

Hi, hope your hedgie is doing okay. I recently posted about a similar issue, though Vladi's bump wasn't as dark. Turned out to be an ingrown whisker hair, which healed up quickly. I've posted a link to the thread so you can check out my picture.
