Can you guys help me

Hi guys, I need help to determine what that black spot is on my bearded dragon. Her name is Mudusa. I don’t know if it’s scale rot, or its fungus or maybe just dirt. I just need help to find out what that is.

Thanks guys

It looks like a wound or missing scales to me, but I'll defer to more senior posters' wisdom on the subject. A little background would help. Does Mudusa share a cage with another dragon or is there anything like a hammock or exposed lamp that she could have injured herself on? If this is a normal wound, the standard advice I've seen is to use raw, unpasteurized honey on it and monitor.

Thank you she does have a huge branch that she lays on when she bask, but she does run around in her enclosure and up and down too on her branch. I will take a better picture sorry for the bad background in the first picture.

It certainly looks like some scale damage, but I'm not sure what the cause would be. I'd definitely keep a close eye on the area. Look out for the wound looking worse or spreading. If it's a bruise or cut it should begin to heal and eventually reduce in size. If it starts to look worse, I'd put some topical antifungal cream on it just in case and have a vet test a sample of the skin to see what you're dealing with.

It doesn't look like anything to worry about. Have you tried a short soak and a light, gentle scrub with a toothbrush ? Other than dirt it looks like a small blemish + nothing really to worry about. Keep an eye on it as Cooper mentioned but my rough + tumble guys + girls have had similar spots over the years.
