dry skin

I think my hedgie might have dry skin, hes very itchy but only when hes running around and active. He has no redness, no quill loss, no flaking, if anything, mildly pink after he itches but it just goes away.
However he will NOT let me give him a bath and ive only had him for about 2 1/2 weeks so should I just give him the oil? I can just get it at the store correct?
Also, any other basic health concerns, I can't ever hold him or get near him so anything that deals with touching his skin or getting a good look at him never works, so Im super paranoid hes gonna get sick and I won't know. So far so good though, his poops are normal, he sleeps normal, eats normal, just the itchyness bothers me.

When do you let him out? Mine gets pretty cranky if i wake him up during the day. And how long do you have him out? Mebbe he isn't out long enough to be properly socialized.
