Question Ham Ham scratching?

I noticed my Ham Ham Botan seemingly scratching her self but I'm not sure if its her cleaning her self or actually itching since its with her back paws. The reason I'm not sure weather she's itching or cleaning is it looks like she puts her back paw to her mouth. So do hamster clean them selves with there back paws too.

Sounds like normal grooming to me.

That's normal grooming behavior the only time I would be concerned is if she was constantly aggressively scratching and she had red skin.

That's normal for a Ham, Pip Scratches herself almost as soon as she gets up with her front and back paws, she also likes to rub herself against something with an edge aswell, she has always done it.
