Last week I took out my hedgehog and noticed he has these small red spots on his nose. I realized I washed his blanket recently with detergent, so I took out that blanket and washed it with just hot water.
That same night I gave him a bath, which he really hated, and rubbed him in a few small drops of Flaxseed oil.
The red dots have stayed the same since, but he's definitely grumpier, and I haven't seen him use his wheel as often. Not sure if it's because of the bath, or if he's sick.
This is my first time with a hedgehog and I'm worried about him! He also has stayed away from his usual sleeping spot, with his blanket, since I took it out and washed it with just hot water.
Any ideas what's going on? TIA.
