Re: Dry Skin? Mites? Dry blood on ears!
It could well be mites. If he's scratching so much as to make himself bleed, I think a vet visit is in order. You'll want to get him seen as soon as possible. For a mite treatment, use Revolution, NOTHING ELSE. If the vet suggests Ivomec/Ivermectin, REFUSE IT. There are a couple of threads in this very section detailing how sick hedgies can get from it, and a few discuss hedgies who have died from that stuff. Keep it far, far away from your hedgehog.

Dry Skin? Mites? Dry blood on ears!
Hi my hedgie, hachi doesn't look his normal self. His eyes seem to be bothering him and his ears are all bloody from I think scratching. And he has flakes.
I don't know what's wrong with him!
