Yellow fungus or shedding???

Postby Superhands » Tue Mar 31, 2020 10:47 am

My beloved dragon has unfortunately been on antibiotics a few times due to a abscess in his hemipene a year ago that required surgery. I'm a bit worried about his recent head sheds, he is an orange beardie and his recent sheds have gone a yellowish colour when they go into the white stage. could this be Y.F?

You can see in these pictures that it's like a slight yellowish dye has been dabbed on him! It happened 2 months ago and when the shed fell away the scales looked perfect underneath but I'm still quite worried[Click image to enlarge]

Can you get a better picture of the specific area? From what I can see in the picture, looks like normal coloring to me. The only thing that looks off is the distance between the scales, but that could just be the picture.

Ok well that ghosting over is definitely just shed :)
And the scales all look normal and healthy so I wouldn't be concerned :D
