My hedgie has this odd red bump on her snout and I don't know what it could be from:( anyone have any ideas?

Is there anything he could be rubbing it on?

I have a rubber duck in her cage and another rubber toy, but they haven't ever bothered her at all.

nikki 03-14-2016 10:58 PM

What kind of cage is she in? bars? glass?

Sterilite bin

It could be a staph infection, it can be quite common and if it is it will need a vet visit to get treatment.

What are the symptoms of a staph in infection in hedgehogs? She's fine in every other way, she eats normal and wheels so I'm not sure if she's sick or if she just accidentally hurt herself

The bump isn't even a bump, really. it's extremely topical and just reddened. She doesn't have any other bumps or lesions on her of any sort.

Update: I just now checked on her and I see a tiny scab forming. I'm going to take her into the vet tomorrow morning

Hey, how is she? It sounds like what started happening with my Hercules, and it turned out to be some sort of allergic reaction.
