Peeling shedding skin

Postby pmullins1 » Thu Mar 26, 2020 5:13 am

Hey Y'all,

My boyfriend and I have a 6 month old beardie, her name is Dino. I am the one that usually takes care of her, such as feeding, giving baths, cleaning her tank. ANYWAYS, my boyfriend was giving her a bath and peeled back some of her shedding skin. I forgot to tell him not to do that. :roll: Will Dino be okay? I know that is something that you're not suppose to do. She seems fine, theres no blood or open skin.

UPDATE: I just looked at her skin and it kinda looks dry. Is that normal? Should I spray her with some water?

I expect Dino will be fine; just keep an eye on that area of skin for signs of irritation/infection. :wink:

BF, however, is a different matter. You must find a proportionately sized patch of skin from the same area on his body that he peeled off of Dino's, and peel it off of him using blow torch & pliers. You must then find an appropriately sized & shaped hunk of 2x4, and beat him soundly with it within an inch of his life. :D

I've been advised that I have to inform you and anyone reading this that the above paragraph is meant in jest, i.e, "That's a JOKE, son--a JOKE; a real knee-slapper!" :laughing6: :lol: :laughhard:

But BF owes you. Milk it for whatever you can... lizard-sitting, nice dinner-date out, candy/flowers, beardie-safe potted plant (not beardie-safe pot plant), new car... :D

A pic or pics might help there, so we can see what we're talking about. :wink:
If you can, try to include a macro/closeup shot of the relevant area.

Spritz/spray w/ water (I use distilled, but whatever you give her a bath/soak in) if you like, or just give her a soak. :D
