Default Irritated/bleeding skin under leg

Hi all,
My baby Nutmeg is only about 3 months old. I am a new hedgehog owner and I am very concerned for her. Just recently I noticed that she was bleeding under her leg. She has been acting very normal and I haven't noticed anything unusual other than this. I have attached the best picture i could get of her. Thanks in advance IMG_1549.jpg

Keep her cage as clean as possible so it doesn't get dirty and become infected. Also, check the entire cage to make sure nothing sharp is sticking out that could have cut her. Keep a close eye on it to make sure it's healing. If she starts biting, scratching, seems in pain, or if the cut gets worse and persists then take her to a vet.
Hope she feels better soon!
