Dark mark on beardie’s belly. Help!

Postby Jumoraes » Mon Feb 03, 2020 5:08 am

My beardie has a mark on his belly.. I noticed it 10 days ago. It doesn’t seem to be getting any worse or any better. Any advice would be appreciated.

There is a small possibility that it could be a burn but the skin is not coming away, there is no seeping and he has just had a big skin shedding.

Could it be a bruise or what? I can’t find anything similar anywhere... In every other respect he is fine...still eating well and normal behaviour.
Any ideas, please?[Click image to enlarge]

Hi there, are you positive it's not a stain from walking over his poo or some dirt ? If not it could be a burn, did he have a hot rock or heat pad ? You can put some raw honey on it or silver sufadiazene cream [ from drug store ] . Be sure there are no loose crickets in the tank, they will go after any wound, especially if you have honey on it. Once you apply the honey or the silver cream you might want to wrap it with gauze [ all the way around the body to keep it in place]

Then it should heal up on it's own.

Thank you! I’ll do that and I’ll let you know how we get on!
