Hey guys, I don't know if I should be worried or not but overnight, these bruises appeared on top of her eyes. I am not sure if they are bruises or a fungus, but they are red (like broken skin). What do you guys think happened, should I worry? Can I put some triple antibiotics? She's basking, eating, and pooping normally. There are no other issues (her eyes themselves are normal). There also seems to be a little bruising on her head too besides the ones on her eyelids. I think she ran into something but I cannot be sure.

Hi there,

Is this your only dragon or do you have others?
Can you post a picture of your setup?

It looks like burn marks to me. Is she able to get her head too close to her basking light?

Hey, yes I do have another dragon but he is in a cage on a shelf below hers, so they don’t make any kind of contact. I can’t take a picture of the setup right now but I will lower her hammock more when I get a chance. Is there anything I can do about her burn marks or do I let it self heal?
