Hey all! I’m new to the forum, and hedgehog ownership! I’ve had Nutmeg for about a month. She’s a generally well socialized little gal, but still ain’t super comfortable with me rubbing and touching on her legs and face. Since I got her, she’s had a couple of weird bumps on her face and around her left eye. She had super dry flakey skin that I find in her cage all the time, and what’s concerning me the most is this yellow kind of scab/crust on her front legs. It doesn’t seem to come off in our normal foot baths. I asked the vet, and when they did a skin scrape they didn’t find anything but decided to do a round of Revolution just in case. What should I do? Should I be bathing her legs a little rougher to try to loosen it off? Any help is appreciated!
