Yesterday, I went and bought a brand new hedgepig from a girl, who seemed respectable, that went to school nearby. She seemed kind of fat (the hedgepig!) and not very well taken care of, but I felt she'd find a better home with me anyway, so I went ahead and bought her. I brought her home and immediately gave her a bath, and I noticed some odd yellow-white lumps on her sides and legs that I've never seen on any other hedge in the past. She also had gross, dirty eears (that seem to be all better now that I've bathed her), and some dry, flaky skin on the outside of her ears. I was wondering if anyone has seen this sort of thing before, and what I can do to help the poor dear?

I'd take her to a vet for a general check-up. There might be other things wrong (the hedgie was obviously poorly cared for) that you can't even see. And if there's nothing major wrong, the vet can give you peace of mind :).
