Dry blood below ears and tattered ears
 
8 Attachment(s)
hi, she is 5 months old hedgie, suddenly i when checked her this morning, and she have dry blood below her ears, and new wound as in picture below ( a bit smelly though), and am i looking for tattered ear (left ear)? looks like her left ear is degrading not like normal ears, or am i wrong.

what is the first solution, or should i straight go to the vet?

I would take her to the vet, there are too many possibilities for us to say for sure here what is causing it.

Yep, vet time. It looks like she scratched too much at her ear or something, & it doesn't look that serious on its own. But it could've been irritation due to mites or an ear infection or something, so you'll want to make sure there's nothing more behind the issue.
