like LilSouthPaw said, it could be the bedding or your hammy might just be getting its scent on things..I reccommend using the cardboard bedding, thats what I usually use for my hammy..its safe and you dont have to worry about it having 'fumes' or anything(or big splinters, like I know pine has sometimes).
another problem might just be because your hammy may have fleas. check to see if this is the case(just look through your hammy's fur to see if there are any fleas) and if there are fleas, I reccommend you use "8 in 1 Ultra Care Flea and Tick Spray for small animals". I also use this for my hamster. It works very well. follow the directions on the bottle.(you just spray it generously all over your hamsters body, except the head, making sure it gets to the skin. I hold my hammy in an old [clean] hand towel until she dries off to make sure she doesnt lick herself and get the stuff into her blood stream. make sure also to not put him/her into the cage until s/he dries, and keep and eye on him/her to make sure s/he doesnt lick him/herself if your not keeping him/her in a towel to dry)
