Unhappy Quill/Handling Problem

My 7-8 week ld Female Hedgehog, Sabel, which I've only had for over a under two weeks now, has been getting extremely protective and aggressive when i touch or go anywhere near her or her quills. When i do manage to pick her up and get her more accustomed to being held again, I notice she'll only let me touch her fur, and will go into the most protective and fierce ball I've seen her in, Spikes going every which way. Her skin also seems dry, so I'm lead to believe maybe her skin is agitated? She does drop a few quills every day, especially when being handled in a shirt or other blanket I have her in when in my lap.
