Bearded Dragon bruise healing or getting worse?

Postby TackoFallForPres » Sun May 16, 2021 8:26 am

Hello my 2 year old Bearded Dragon got a bruise about 2 months ago. I put saw raw honey on it for about a month. Then I stopped because it started to look better. I also didn't know how long I should keep doing it for. Should it have healed by now? It looks like this https://imgur.com/a/hI6Nd2V
Is it shedding or getting worse?

It does look like shed but shouldn't last so long in that area. Can you give Tacko a bath + use a toothbrush lightly on it ?

I did do that and it didnt seem to come off in the bath. I did get it wet though so hopefully the shed will come off soon. Would it make sense if he is hiding in the shade more due to his injury and it shedding?

He might be a little stressed , especially after getting the facial treatment as you tried to use the toothbrush on him.

Okay thank you! Sorry but one more thing, should I start to use the honey again or continue to let it heal/shed on it's own?

You can use more, a light coating as long as you don't have loose insects in the tank or a loose substrate that would stick to it.
