This forum is for urgent health concerns, where your beardie seems very ill and you need immediate help!
I have no clue how to post pictures( even though I have in the past ) but my bearded dragon, dexter, seems to have dry blood on his lips. I think it's from hitting his face on the glass when he wants attention, but I never see any actual wounds. Someone please help I'm worried it may be rot mouth or something more serious
Hi there, I hope Dexter is O.K., here's how to post pics :

If he does have a sore on his mouth you can use raw, unpasteurized honey from a health store. It's a natural antimicrobial that promotes healing.
Thank you for the help! Here is the picture[Click image to enlarge]
I hope it's clear! It seems to have gone away now but it's done this from time to time where it's there at one point and gone the next day
Perhaps he just bumped or scraped his nose a bit. If that's the case it should heal without a problem. Are you able to get a look in his mouth at his gums?
It looks like he may have just banged up his mouth some by repeatedly bashing himself up against the glass.
You can get some raw unpasteurized honey or manuka honey to put on that area to help in case there might be infection. It is safe to use in the mouth & on the gums.
How big is his tank? Mine has a 40 gal breeder by he still likes to spend a decent amount of time out otherwise he will get cranky and climb the walls. The organic health food honey is a good idea.
