As others have mentioned, they do need fresh food and water daily. Water goes skunky and food goes stale sitting in the dish and can become contaminated.

If she has not eaten in 4 days she needs to see the vet and get food syringed into her now. To not eat anything for that length of time means something is wrong and FLD may have started.

Yes hedgehogs are lactose intolerant but a small amount of yogurt or cottage cheese once in a while is fine. If the hedgehog has messy poops afterward, don't feed it again.

I suggest you start syringing her asap.
