Unhappy PLEASE HELP: peeling/raw skin, swollen feet, losing hair, hardened ears

Hi guys,

I recently came back from a vacation to find my hedgehog's feet and legs were swollen, skin dry and peeling, and nails looked discolored. I also noticed her ears were hardened at the tips and darker. I gave her an oatmeal bath to soothe her skin and realized she was losing a lot of hair around her feet/legs. I searched around and thought it could be mites or ringworms or something, but she's not losing any quills. Have any of you experienced anything like this? It's affecting all 4 of her legs/feet, both ears, and a little on the tip of her tail.
