Default Dry and red ears

hello everyone. I noticed my hedgehog had been having dry ears, and is quite red around the centre?? here are some photos. I’ve been using dog oatmeal shampoo ever since i got him and there was never a problem. Any advice?

Maybe try using baby wash? But if the rest of him is fine, maybe use some coconut oil or something so that his ears arent so dry? Good luck!

The red looks like he has been scratching it where its dry it may be irritating him.

Coconut oil massaged in will help the dry skin, but I'm not sure I'd want to put that on the red.

If you can find some sort of soothing cream, like nivia, check how he reacts to it on your finger and then just gently massage it in.
