Exclamation Weird orange splotches on quills and fur

So I was bathing my hedgie and I saw some orange splotches on her quills, I assumed she's just got some dirt on her butt while running through the house and didn't think much of it. But just recently I was bathing her and I saw the same orange splotches on her back and on the fur on her stomach. Not only that but her fur seems to be much less soft than usual, almost coarse. Her skin also seems dry but im going to try and use some coconut oil on it first. I'm worried about her health and how I need fix it

Your best going to a vet asap and getting her checked over.

Are you only seeing it in the bath or can you see it normally during bonding?

Could be from self annointing. If a hedge hog finds anew smell they like say carrots for instance they make a weird foam and then spred it on themselves. Could it be something like that?
