Not likely. Hedgies like to check out interesting & new scents, so putting anything on it will probably make him do it again. He might be biting because of your body wash, perfume/cologne, etc. Best way to avoid it is just that - keep him away from the spot so you avoid him biting it at all. This sticky might be helpful too. https://www.hedgehogcentral.com/forum...-now-what.html
Also, just for future reference, we try to avoid having people comment on old threads because it can easily confuse people (they'll miss the new question & answer the OP even if it's from years ago or already resolved), and your question is easier to miss. To post a new thread, there's a button in the top left corner above the forum threads.
