Default Something on her ears :/

Hi everyone, my hedgehog is called Vourtsa which means brush in Greek and I have her since End of October !! I bought when she was 2 months old and she was very friendly from the beginning yesterday I noticed something on her ears! Like they were cut :/ her ears are normally grey- brown but now on the edges they became white yellow :/ I'm uploading a photo of her so you can understand better what I mean! I want to go to the vet now but I wanted to have an idea before I go. I read somewhere about ringworms, mites or even dry skin.
Thanks a lot.

I'll let someone more experienced answer but it could be tattered ears. That just means the dry skin/dirt is is building up on the ears in layers. I've heard you can use different oils to help moisturize them, or even use something as simple as Vaseline. Hope this helps! (:

Try warm baths and humilac spray! It cured my hedgies ears in a week and they were bad.
I'm not sure how tame your is but I would spray a little puddle into a dish and use my fingers to dab his ears front and back with it then after a week of that gave him a bath and VERY gently picked most of the dried crusty stuff off, his ears shed the rest within a few days hope this helps
