Default Does my Hedgie have an infection plz help!

Bentley is 2 months and three weeks he is quilling I think he might have gotten an infection on his visor. when I got him he already had some blood at the base of his quills. but being a new hedgie owner I didn't notice. This week however he lost almost all of his quills on his right visor and when it scabs new quills grow right beside it resulting in the scab to be pulled off by the quills. Today it was bleeding a bit but not as bad as last week. what can I do to maybe help the poor guy???

Is anything draining from it? Is it really red, swollen or inflamed looking? If not then just keep it as clean as possible and it should be fine.
