Default Pimple-like wound on forehead?

Hello, my Syrian hamster Bubble has a small round wound on her forehead. It looks like if human has pimple and you popped it, and there would be small hard scab on it. The small scab fell off and now there's a small wound but it's not bleeding, it's also not a lump/bump. It looks just like if you picked on a dried pimple. I wonder is she's okay?

It was not there last night, it just randomly appeared. For now I have cleaned it with wet cotton ball. Hope it will heal soon (

I'd check the cage to see if she could have hurt herself somewhere

the only thing i could think of is probably the plastic mat that my hamster likes to gnaw on lately, the edges became kinda rough, so i took it out right after. or i was thinking it could be ant bite? and she scratched/overgroomed it.

it's the second day now and it doesn't look worse hahaha and she doesn't seem bothered by it, wouldn't flinch or bite me if i clean it 😄
