Strange bubble has formed

Postby cupidstoejam » Fri Jun 19, 2020 10:22 am

Hello, forum. My dragon has formed a fluid-filled bubble behind his ear. The bubble isnt draining and has not ruptured. Should I be worried? I have attached photos.

I agree, have a vet check that out and try to determine what the source is. It may or may not be serious but it's hard to tell from the photos.

Wait, is there a blistering disease I should start panicking about? (I’m already scrubbing Mari’s cage and giving her baths immediately after she touches anything outside because I’m so anti-yellow fungus that I’m the biggest threat to any fungal spore within 200 feet of my house.)

Hello,

That is an odd formation indeed!
I agree, getting some of the fluid from it aspirated by a vet to culture is the best option to be
sure that it isn't filled with infection.
How long has this been there, did it just appear suddenly?
There isn't any type of blistering disease, no, just the yellow fungus though that is bad enough
of an ailment.
Is his appetite doing alright?

No blistering, no diseases, and no worries. The bubble seemed to form over a weeks time.

After about a dozen phone calls to surrounding vets, i finally found one that cares for dragons. The apt is this Friday.

Hello,

How is your boy doing?
That's great you ended up finding a vet who sees reptiles, I hope he is good then. Has the
area changed on him at all, or has it remained the same?
Let us know how the vet visit goes.
