Default Losing Quills

Hi. My hedgehog Winston has been losing quills. There are now large bald patches. 3 weeks ago he had a major infection and was on oral antibiotics for a week. This caused significant stress, and I attributed the quill loss to the infection. However, the infection has cleared up the quill loss has continued.

What are your thoughts? Also, I am 300 miles or more from an exotic vet.
