Exclamation red open sores underneath hedgie quills

hello, i am a fairly new hedgie owner. i adopted this hedgehog from my friend who was unable to take care of him anymore. they have taken care of him for around 2 months, and he's been in my care for almost 2 months. His exact age is unknown.

he has been quilling for the past week and i would see close to 30 loose quills per day. since i adopted him he's had a patch of quills that would not sit down. i've examined the skin under that patch: it had orange crust. i've ever thought anything of it. but since he's been quilling, i suppose its may be because of his nails, and how itchy he's been his skin is now an open wound. Earlier today i've seen some puss emerging from the skin.

any clue as to what this may be? (video link below)
