I've never heard of anyone using ferretone on their hedgies. I'm not sure what it does, but I don't think it's really all that essential to a hedgehog...
The flaking sounds like a simple case of dry skin; if there's no excessive itching, odds are it's not mites. Mites usually come from wooden bedding, so the chances of it definitely lessen since you have liners. It really just sounds like dry skin. It can happen around season changes. Most people use Flax seed oil or vitamin E, adding a few drops to the water/skin at bathtime. You can also take those flax seed oil capsules for humans and put a few drops on the food once or twice a week.
