Exclamation Losing Quills + Possible Dry Skin

Nala, my 2 month female hedgehog has been losing quite a lot of quills recently. I noticed that there are quills growing out and asked my breeder regarding this and he said that as long as there are quills growing, I'm free from mites.

I've heard of diatomaceous earth powder helps with mites but I'm wondering if it can eradicate them or just prevent them? Also heard that some mix them to their wood-based bedding. Any thoughts?
