Default Red Bumps/Pimples on skin

I have recently noticed a pimple like dot on my hedgehog Dexter/s butt and i'm not sure if it is necessary to take him to the vet? Of course i want whats best him but if its an ingrown hair it should just resolve on its own. Any advise to help him

Could you get pictures of it to help determine if it's possibly nothing?
How long has it been there?
How old is he?

You can see the two bumps one under his tail and the other in the top right near his quills and he has another bumps on his right side close to his shoulder(cannot see in pic)

Default Pimple like red dots and scabs

Update on my hedgehog Dexter, he has his pimple like dots on his butt area and quill line. Now I have noticed some scabs on his front legs and his tummy. Could it be from scratching?? I don't notice him scratching to often and he is his normal happy self but it's worrying me that it might be mites?? I just gave him a foot bath ans put neosporin on the areas to see if that could help. Any ideas on what it could be??

If the neosporin didn't help overnight any, I suggest scheduling a veterinary visit to have them looked at. It could be mites, but it could also be an infection of some sort causing the spots.
