Default Scab on neck/chest area

My poor hedgehog has what appears to be a giant scab on his neck. I thought it was poop so during bath time I pulled it off about half way but then realized it was a scab still attached by skin. I plan on getting to the vet but has anyone experienceod this with their hedgehog?

I haven't personally gone through this but good thing you're taking him to the vet. Good luck.

Please let us know what your vet says. That's a scary looking scab. Good luck!

I know that my hedgie qill chew on her neck and chest area when she is panicked by smells she doesn't like. I mean she really goes at it aggressively. She has gotten a few scabs in that area from it, but they have been pretty small. We spend a lot of time snugging with her in the evenings so its east for us to catch her in the act. We dab her with a tiny bit of watered down rubbing alcohol so that she won't continue to chew after we catch her.

Im not sure if your hedgie is doing the same thing, but it might be worth paying extra attention to see if they are.
