Unfortunately, you need to find a veterinarian that will be willing to look at your hedgehog and to learn about how to treat them. You don't necessarily need an exotic vet, but you do need one that is willing to research, learn and is willing to take suggestions from you (as you research about medical care at the same time). As a hedgehog owner you are going to run into instances where you need them and this sounds like it is one of those times.

The images you post are helpful, but unfortunately there is no way for any of us to diagnose what is causing the problem. I have thoughts about what could be going on, like fungal infections, bacterial infections, allergic reactions, mites, etc. Far too many items and almost all require medication to treat.
