Possible Yellow Fungus

Postby Muzz123 » Mon Mar 22, 2021 2:53 am

Hi All,

I am a little nervous about what this yellow mark is on the side of bearded dragon. Is it Yellow Fungus?
I sanitize my tank monthly and wash my bearded dragon regularly. She also is currently eating very well at the momen with a diet that consists of dubias as her staple and a variety of veggies such as collards, parsley and squash. She has been shedding a little from her head recently.

She is nearly a year old. We have already had two egg lays also recently.

Just a little concerned and would appreciate any help possible.

I have attached some photos below

Thank you.

Thank you so much and I apologies for the slow reply.

I meant to say two clutches. We have a nice cozy lay box for her.

So these are some new photos. It looks like she has hurt herself and doesn't like it when i touch her. I am a little worried about it because of that. So she is in pain. She is still eating tones and is active but it clearly hurts. Is there anything I can do?

I see, that is def. something there. Is it protruding or bulging slightly ? It might be good to have an experienced reptile vet check it out.

It is bulging a little bit. She is still eating really well and going to the toilet regularly. She is just in a little pain.

Here is another photo if it helps. It doesn't look as bad.

You can put a little watered down betadine on it a couple times a day, Neosporin or raw honey as well. Be sure there are no hidden insects in the tank that would bite at the wound.
