This a great forum :D your post must have just got lost in the mix ;)
Don't give up on HHC just yet.
I am new here as well and have alot to learn as well.
Sounds to me like it could be mites or the adult quilling.
What kind of bedding was he own at the petstore and now?
Most the people on HHC use fleece to line their cages..Fleece don't harbor mites and is alot better for the hedgie since there is no dust to be breathing in 24/7.
Herisson gave some good advice you should get a vet to check him out ;) if he has mites he should be treated with revolution it is much safer than ivermectin.
I would try what Herisson said about the biting and picking up issues.
