Default HELP! Baby hedgehog has red sores all over her

Hi, I've had my baby hedgehog for about 2 weeks now and recently in the past week I've noticed that she has like red scabs on her back round her quills. She also had been scratching a lot and losing quills so I bathed her in coconut oil like her breeder told me too, then took her to the vets, she gave me stuff to treat mites even though she wasn't sure if she had it.

She's albino and in the past few days her skin has gotten worst and more and more sores and scabs have appeared on her and she's losing more quills but she is a baby so is this from quilling or something else?

Please help!
