Yellow Fungus?

Postby Sherwinol » Wed Dec 11, 2019 9:30 am

Got my beardie from Petco where he was in the Wellness room for months with a case of yellow fungus. The vet said he was positive for yellow fungus after a swab and lab testing. He's living alone and is at a good weight, getting frequent baths. Is there any treatments I can do for him? I was going to start experimenting with betadine solution.

You can use lamisil but really yellow fungus is very hard to treat and will most likely need vet prescribed cream.

Do you have pictures of the dragon and the yf?

The most successful treatment I've seen so far includes topical treatment such as antifungal cream and/or betadine in combination with an oral antifungal medication such as Voriconazole. These are fairly long term treatments so I'd discuss options with your vet and try to chart out a proper course of treatment.
