Red patch on hand after shed

Postby Brittneesmile » Sun Mar 03, 2019 1:42 pm

My 2 year old beardie has been shedding every part of her body for the past few days and it’s really been bothering her. She’s been rubbing up against everything. Ive given her a bath daily to help and she’s been able to scratch things off. She is in the bath right now and I just noticed she has a red spot in her hand. She was just shedding there yesterday.
Yesterday I left to go get lunch and noticed on her camera that she was pacing and climbing rubbing her body and face on everything.

She acts like shes allergic to something--- what kind of UVB do you have for your tank ? And where is it? Some one else will haft to weigh in on the redness of the hand

I don’t think she’s allergic to anything. She’s only been doing that while shedding. She hasn’t shed her entire face in a long time and was rubbing her face on everything. She doesn’t have any super rough textures in her tank.

You can take a soft toothbrush and put her in the bath and use the toothbrush to rub the loose shed off --- she will like it if shes itching--

It's kind of hard to tell if it's her scales or something on her scales. What do you feed her, anything red? Like a strawberry? What type of substrate does she have? Can you try getting another picture that's a little more focused on the hand?

It only shows up when her hand is wet. She’s on paper towels right now because of a previous parasite issue. She just shed and was shedding in that area.
