Does this look like stuck shed or yellow fungus? She has this spot right after her last shed and I can't get it to come off in over a month. I've had my vet refur me to a specialist appointment next week for it to get checked out before its too late. She's not showing any other signs of Yellow Fugus other than the spot and some abrasions on her feet, but those are from digging. She just layed eggs last week and was digging like crazy. She's still really young, about 8 months, so I wasn't prepared for her digging yet. She's really active and has always loved running around and being out of her tank. She eats a lot of kale and crickets when I can find them. And she gets plenty of water. For the abrasions on her feet her tank set up as been modified as of the past month to accommodate the treatment. That being rubbing some Silver Sulfadizine Cream on her feet and stomach once a day and giving her .02 mL of Enrofloxacian orally. Inside her tank she just has her food dishes and the flooring is currently paper towels I regularly switch out to keep clean.
Her feet weren't yellow at all until about a week after I started the treatment and then her feet slowly started to yellow and the spot on her stomach started to spread. At the top will be pictures of her now and at the bottom will be the before. If it is yellow fungus what should I do to help stop it from spreading any further till the vet appointment?

Doesn't look at all like Y.F., just trauma from scooting around and digging. Betadine soaks are good [ 1 part betadine to 10 parts water ] and if you want, you can use raw honey on the belly wrapped with gauze.. Then check it every few days.

That's why I mentioned raw honey and putting gauze [ not too tight ] all around her belly and taped on the back.

Okay thats a huge relief. I'll go through and start doing that after I get off work tonight. I was freaking out thinking it was yellow fungus.
