Default Flaking skin

My hedgehog is now around 3 months old and I don’t bath her whole body all the time probably around once every 3/4 weeks, but she’s been itchy to the extreme recently and her skin is flaking. Is there anything anyone recommends to sooth it I don’t want her to feel irritated?

Hello from what I have read and researched we put several drops of extra virgin olive oil in (Oreo's) bath water along with aveeno baby shampoo in the water. This seems to help with the flaking and dry skin. You could try that. Also I use a baby tooth brush put the soap on the tooth brush and gently scrub the direction of hedgie's quills my hedgie loves it and eventually your will too. I use the olive oil each time I give her a bath. Good luck! Hope this helpful but if your hedgie has mites or something else that might require a visit to the vet.
