Hello

I've noticed my beardie has yellow crust on both sides of his mouth and look swollen. This probs sounds so idiotic but I've been thinking it mustve just been from the bugs and worms he was eating but now I'm not so sure and worried its something more sinister. He is well and no other issues apart from this

Hi Melissa, I don't see anything unusual, it probably is some bug guts. He's going to shed his head soon so you'll see what his scales look like after that. But if you want to check now you can give him a 5 minute lukewarm-warm soak and gently stroke it with a soft toothbrush or use a rough wash cloth or rag.
