Red spots between beardies scales

Postby MissyMay27 » Tue May 11, 2021 12:43 pm

Good day, I'm new on this forum but I am so happy there is a place for all beardie lovers and owners can go to help give our scaley friends the best life possible.
I just got a 1 year old beardie a week and a half ago and noticed these red marks on her right after I got her. The red marks are on all her palms and on her thigh. Are they possibly from an injury or some sort of bacterial infection going on? She doesn't seem to be bothered by them. I just want to make sure she's as happy and healthy as can be.
I know the previous owner who had her for 3 months used newspaper as bedding, and she was fed mealworms and collard greens. But I have never once seen her eat a green. She will taste it and turn her head lol. But please let me know if you have any answers. I would greatly appreciate it!

First thing I would do is give her a bath, see if it washes away. Could be from ink off a newspaper.

If it won't wash away, take her to a vet as it could be bacterial. She also needs her nails trimmed badly.

Thank you! I have given her a couple baths and they didn't go away. And I will definitely some research on how to trim her nails. I appreciate you commenting!
