Default Rash on belly

I was holding my hedgehog last night and noticed a nasty sore/rash on her belly. I’ve read a bit and a lot of people are saying mites but I can’t see any and it seems to be just in that area. I changed her bedding a couple days ago and it’s getting to the bottom of the bag and there’s a bit of dust so I thought maybe the dust from it is irritating her? I’ve also been letting her run around my apartment a bit so maybe she has just been licking/biting herself because of all of the new smells? She hasn’t had any behavior changes and it doesn’t seem to be hurting her. I hold her every day and haven’t noticed it before but I know FOR SURE it wasn’t there December 1. Has anyone experienced anything like this?

I just saw that on mine also! I’m so scared because I don’t know what it is. I’ve given him a bath but I’m going to try an oatmeal bath tonight and some neosporin. I’m going to call the vet tomorrow but I don’t know if they see hedgehogs. I’ve only had him about a week and a half.
