Hi, my hedgehog was acting strange yesterday (hyperactive, running around and seeming to try and flip herself onto her back and biting her stomach) and I've noticed that she has a scab and some bite marks on her stomach now. She's not biting it right now, but what should I do to get her to stop and keep that area uninfected and clean? I've included the best picture I could get of her stomach right now.

I'd take her to the vet to make sure she doesn't have anything going on like mites or a skin infection that's irritating her. It could've also been a bug bite of some kind that was bothering her & started the issue. Once you determine if there are any underlying issues, the vet can give you instructions & probably a product to help clean the area so it can heal.
