Looks to be a lot of bald patches and potential scabs - there can be multiple reasons for such symptoms occurring. Only a hands on check by a vet is really going to be able to give you a diagnosis and the correct treatment

That looks really painful.
Please have your piggy seen by a vet for proper treatment and diagnosis.
