Are his nails trimmed? If they are too long and he continues scratching he could be leaving dirty open wounds behind. Maybe you could try soaking a cotton ball in warm water with some coconut oil then applying it to his ears. It would atleast give some relief to the skin. But I wouldn't do this if there is any open bleeding wounds. I hope your hedgie feels better soon!
