Black raised spot on my bearded dragons beard

Postby BelaViserion123 » Thu Jul 22, 2021 10:16 am

My bearded dragon is 2 years old and about a year ago I saw a small black spot growing on his beard. I thought nothing of it at the time because it could have been a birthmark. But now it’s raised and has become dry looking at the bottom of it. I’ve caught him twice itching it but I don’t know if it’s been more than that when I’m not with him. It has now become blue-ish black and I’m becoming very concerned.

I hope you can help my baby🥺

Hi there, post a few pictures without the circle around it, just normal. And to be proactive you can get a small bottle of betadine , use it by mixing with water, 1 part betadine to 10 parts water to dab on with a Q-tip or cotton ball and after it's dry get a small tube of antifungal cream and dab some on .

It looks like a patch of shed but it is a little odd so putting those products on should clear it up and help it shed. Be alert when using a cotton ball or Q-tip that he's not a derpy dragon like one of mine that thinks anything coming towards his face is a treat and tries to bite it. :) BTW, you don't have a heat rock do you ?

Okay great! He is currently shedding so that probably why it looks a little blue or grey but when he isn’t shedding, it’s black. I do not have a heat rock but I do have a rock in the cage but it’s not on the heated side. What anti fungal cream do you recommend?
