Help! My beardie’s chest has turned yellow

Postby Christine19 » Tue Apr 24, 2018 12:04 pm

I noticed a few days ago that my beardie has a brand new yellow patch on his chest, right elbow and inner arm. I’ve read things on yellow fungus and hope that’s not what it is but would like to know if it is anything else. It isn’t dry and his scales look fine but this section has turned a bright yellow. However in his armpit area it looks like it has started to peel. Please help!

As you can see in his armpit he has a little bit of peeling that is dark underneath the yellow.

Hello,

Simply based on the pictures, it doesn't appear to be fungal in nature, but just regular
pigmentation changes on her. They can develop new colors as they get older.
Since it's shedding, maybe wait until all of the shed comes off to re-evaluate it. The
area shouldn't spread at all, if it isn't fungal.

It does look like shed, but get more pics in better light.
