I'm so glad he's going to be better. He's a real cutie:)
My Pineapple has been diagnosed with ringworm too so I've been reading up on it and I've found that if your hedgie is having quill loss but no itching and gets skin irritation it's usually ringworm and not mites.
Mites cause a lot of itchiness and are visible to the eye.
Also, scabbing occurs as the infection gets more progressed.
It sounds like your vet should've caught it a lot earlier.
