Default Biting stomach?

Hi, my hedgehog was acting strange yesterday (hyperactive, running around and seeming to try and flip herself onto her back and biting her stomach) and I've noticed that she has a scab and some bite marks on her stomach now. She's not biting it right now, but what should I do to get her to stop and keep that area uninfected and clean? I've included the best picture I could get of her stomach right now.

I'd take her to the vet to make sure she doesn't have anything going on like mites or a skin infection that's irritating her. It could've also been a bug bite of some kind that was bothering her & started the issue. Once you determine if there are any underlying issues, the vet can give you instructions & probably a product to help clean the area so it can heal.
