Cut or Shed

Postby gigi613 » Tue Mar 12, 2019 6:17 pm

Today i went to put Naga back into her tank after some time of chilling with me and i closed the door of her tank without realizing her tail was sticking out a bit. it didnt close all the way, but just enough for a little skin to be grazed. Now here's my predicament; my lovely girl is due to shed her tail any day now and as you can see in the picture I included her "wound" from the door seems to be just some of that shed uprooted bc of what happened. My mind went automatically to "oh no its a cut it's going to get infected" and im confirming on here what you guys think. TO be cautious i soaked her tail in a betadine bath incase of an actual cut. Please let me know what you guys think; is this uprooted shed, or a cut that i need to treat?

It looks like some scales that were about to shed got grazed. Just keep the area clean as you've been doing and it should be OK.
