Hi everyone,

My Bearded dragon, Yuma (5,5years old) has these 2 brown ‘pimples’/moles on her face for about a week. Does anyone know what this could be? I was told on another platform that there’s a vet active on this forum but anyone who could help or knows something about this is very much welcome. Thank you and greetings🦎

Was it right to post this under ER or should’ve posted it under Health?

Hello,

Hm, interesting looking!
You mentioned that they haven't been there for very long? Throughout their life, their skin
can change somewhat, & develop pigmentation changes, such as freckles, etc.
Are these spots smooth in nature, or are they raised any at all or rough to the touch?

They could be mites or ticks.

Hi Tracie,

Thanks for the reply, in this picture you can see the texture better.
To me it looks like some sort of mole but I can't find anything online that looks exactly the same as this.

Hi BeardedDragonSteve,

Thanks for the reply, but no they haven't had crickets for a very long time.
We give them worms once a week( which we keep very clean) and lots of different veggies and fruit.
Can they get anything from worms too?
Greetings

That looks like some kind of growth or blood blister perhaps. I would probably have a vet take a sample and try to get a better idea about what's going on there. Keep an eye on the areas and note if they change or grow.
