Default Itching: Normal?

My headehog, Hercules, has been itching lately, and I cannot tell if it is normal or not.
He was reciently super sick and just came off of antibiotics and a steriod.
He only itches a lot right before he goes to bed (when I get up). I can have him out during the day, or at night just when he has woken up, and he is perfectly fine; no scratching.
His skin looked slightly dry, so I gave him an oatmeal bath, and now his skin looks great, but he is still itching right before he goes to sleep.
He has no bald spots and just finished a precautionary round of revolution.
I can't tell if it is normal or if something is wrong.

Is the skin red or inflamed? If not, then I think that he is alright (: Maybe he just likes to itch before he goes to bed :P
