I'm not a vet, but it seems to me like the dandruff you're seeing is either mites, really dry skin, or a skin infection. I think the next step is to visit a vet and see what needs done. If it's mites, (which I would suspect) you'll want to make sure your vet uses Revolution, which is safe for hedgehogs. You'll also need to sterilize everything in the cage (scrub it down, throw away wooden items, and probably change the type of bedding you use).
