Yellow fungus?

Postby HOLLAND11 » Mon Jun 29, 2020 2:50 pm

Hello, my bearded dragons name is coco. I noticed this yellow spot 2 days ago and need help identifying if it’s yellow fungus. She has been eating like crazy and hasn’t shed for a couple of weeks. She is 8 months old.[Click image to enlarge]

There's no problem there, no scrubbing needed. :)

I also want to add that she hasn’t been pooping to often could that be a sign. I have been crying all day worried because I saw that if they have it that it is death not matter what. I thank you for responding so fast it means so much to me just for some feedback. I think I’m going to take her to the vet still to get it checked out.

It's normal to be nervous about things that you're not sure about . But just know that you have 2 very experienced b.d. owners telling you that there's no Y.F. to be seen. I don't even see any yellow. Sometimes when we read too much about an illness or disease we think we start noticing it in ourselves or pets. You don't need to see a vet, there is nothing wrong with your dragon so relax and enjoy her ! :)

How long until she sheds then because that spot is starting to get crusty?

You can get some Lamisil or Monistat antifungal cream, it will soften any skin + clear up those blemishes.

So you really don’t think there’s anyway possible that’s yellow fungus? And I’ll do that ASAP

And also I’m sorry I’m confused what exactly do I have to give it to her. And it’s an anti fungal so does that mean she has a fungul problem or just blemishes

Highly unlikely to be Y.F. Using the cream will loosen shed more quickly so you'll see more clear skin area faster. If it were to be a tiny bit of any type of fungus then it would take care of that as well.

Just put a small dab on the areas, just like you'd put Neosporin on a small scrape or cut.
