Overly dry skin or something else?

I'm a new hedgehog owner and I've had her for about a month. I would say she is 10-12 weeks old. She is still getting used to me and was much more shy than her brothers and sisters. So since I haven't had her long I can't see a huge difference in the way she acts. She's eating fine as always and everything seems normal. I do hear occasional scratching and she has become a little more huffy and jumpy the last day or two. I took her out to clean her cage and I saw a lot of dry skin and some hard dry skin halfway up a quill. I took some pictures so I could show what I'm concerned about. If anyone has any idea I would appreciate advice!

I would take her to a vet and have her treated with Revolution ASAP.

Does it look like mites to you or just some revolution as a precaution?

It's hard to tell in pictures but use Revolution just to be safe.

I agree however DO NOT LET THE VET USE INTERVECTERMIN IT WILL KILL YOUR HEDGEHOG. Though revolution is safe

I see an orange colored scab on her chest. That's mites right?
