Default Hedgehog itching because of new bedding

My hedgehog is one year old and I recently make the switch from wood shavings to a liner for bedding. Needless to say he was a little stressed out about it but he seems to be able to adapt. He's still sleeping and eating and running around in his wheel.
But I've noticed he's been itching himself (on his quills) a lot more frequently than before, can I can't help but feel there's a connection there!! I'm really worried that maybe he's allergic or sensitive to the material. The "liner" in question is a soft absorbant dog mat. It didn't say what material it was made of so that was probably the first red flag. Help!
