Default bump underneath eye

I noticed a couple days ago my hedgehog was squinting a little and he has a red bump on the inner side of his eye a little bit underneath it, it looks a little worse today and I'm not sure if he just scratched it and it got irritated or if it's something serious

am calling the vet in the morning, was just trying to see if anyone has had the same issue and what I should be expecting when bringing him to the vet

Poor guy! Maybe some sort of skin infection?? Is it oozing anything? Pus? Interstitial fluid?

It looks like it could be a skin infection but its hard to tell.

was just sitting with him and saw a little bit of white stuff coming out of it closer to his eye, I'm really worried about it and hopefully he can get into the vet tomorrow

He might of somehow damaged the skin and it got infected or it could be a parasite creating the wound. Only a vet would know for sure.
