Default Scab on neck/above belly

I’m really worried about my hedgehog Penelope. She likes to run around my apartment a lot and when she does she gets itchy so I assume it’s just the dust. Except now I noticed a scab right below her neck. I plan on taking her the vet soon but I want to try to findout if this is a big emergency or not. I’m new to owning a hedgehog and she is almost 4 months old 😞 my poor baby! Please help!!

She might be self-mutilating, it's a common spot for them to chew at. It can have many reasons (stress, pain, itching, etc.) Any idea why she might be doing this? Is she itching a lot?
