Stuck shed or fungus?

Postby Xano » Tue Dec 03, 2019 9:50 am

]Got him around 1 month ago he was 7 inches. Now about 9 inches and almost 2 sheds in I noticed this dark spot on his back it's been 2 weeks since last shed and I'm not sure what it is. This is my first beardie so if anyone has experience or can give me advice I would highly appreciate it just has me worried. Baths are given every other day

Hi there, probably just a patch of shed but cut out the baths , if it's fungal baths may spread it. Once he goes through another shed you'll see more clearly what it is. To be proactive get a small tube of Lamisil or Monustat antifungal cream. If it IS fungus it will work on it and if it's just shed it will moisten it enough to get it off.

Hi there,

That last picture does look like it has a high probability of being some type of fungal infection. Doing the lamisil treatments like AHBD suggested should help.

Question when applying the cream he's ok to be under the light? Or apply before sleep?

It looks a bit less crusty. Hopefully it will continue to be effective.

Not much but it's only been a couple of days. A bit less crusty like Cooper said but see how it does in a week or so, it should look better by then.

Hello,

It does look a bit fungal to me, also. Being proactive & using the lamisil right now should
help out since it appears to be very mild.
He isn't too close to his basking bulb is he?

I'd say the highest spot is about 6 to 7 inches away and the basking area is about 10 11 inches away
