Default Bumps on skin

I just noticed that my hedgehog has several growths on her skin. I can't tell if they are harmless skin tags, nipples, or something more serious. There are four of them and they look exactly the same. Two are on her side and the other two are near her leg. I've attached a photo of what it looks like.

I don't want to take her to the vet unless I absolutely have to because car rides are really stressful for her and I can't afford an unnecessary procedure.
