I have a 7 month old male Hedgehog named Spork.

I just noticed today that he seems to be itchy, mostly around his right ear. I picked him up and looked at him closely. His skin does seem a little dry but not a lot of flaking. He does however seem to have pink skin in some places and darker blotches almost black in other. Is this normal for hedgehogs or should he have pink flesh everywhere under his quills. The dark spots are fairly large and only where he has quills.

He also just now was drinking water and anointing himself, but almost like he was spreading the water over his body.

Any idea of what it could be? Should I be moisturizing him?
