scale discolouration and black scale PLS HELP!!

Postby emirooni » Sat Nov 21, 2020 2:40 pm

Hello!
I’ve had my beardie Rango for almost 3 years now and recently i’ve seen some slight yellowing in his armpit area as well as in the crevasse of his thigh and back. i’ve also noticed a single black scale on his beard. he’s generally very active except now that it’s winter and he enjoys bumping his head on different surfaces. i’m really worried it might be YF as i’ve read a lot about it. he’s eating and pooping regularly and his scales are the same texture. I’d really like some advice if this is his normal colouring, stuck shed or possible fungal infections
pls help hes my best friend and i have to pay for vet visits myself so i can’t go everytime i’m worried :(

I see just the very slightest tint of color that does not look like anything. If you're concerned you can get a small tube of antifungal cream like Lamisil but I don't think there's anything of concern there. He looks good. :)

Hello,

I agree, the scales look normal to me, as well.
As suggested, you can get an anti-fungal cream to use just in case but it looks ok. He might
have a few areas that are going to shed soon though.
