Possible Yellow fungus? Help!!

Postby myagregory1 » Mon Aug 03, 2020 7:21 pm

It looks like my beardies beard and right under it are yellow. Her feet seem a little discolored too. She just finished shed and I thought it would go away with it but it didn't. I read about yellow fungus and I wanted to see if anyone had ideas before I spent hundreds at the vet. I was thinking about starting her on a betadine bath and anti-fungal cream ASAP but again I wanted to see if that was the right thing to do and If so what brand for those are the best? please help!! I want to catch It early if this is YF[Click image to enlarge]

Hello,

Very cute little one there. :D
The yellowish pigmentation is normal. A lot of them tend to develop that coloration on their
beards especially. The feet & hands look fine to me as well.
Has she been shedding recently on the hands & feet too?
How old is she?

Oh good, I'm glad that's normal thank you! She shed her hands and feet about a week and a half ago. I usually monitor her shedding very closely but I was on vacation so my only information comes from my dad who was taking care of her. He said she shed well though.
The place where I got her never gave me a certain age but based on her size (about 14.5 in) I think shes about 5 months.

I agree that's perfectly normal color, seen the same many times. :)
