Help needed to identity skin conditions

Postby Izzybeardy123 » Sun Apr 14, 2019 8:59 am

[/img]My adult beardie has developed a dark black discoloration of skin. It's growing in size and is on the left side of her back. It looks fungal.

He has had it for a few months now

Many thanks

WOW!!!!
That looks like a BAD burn. You need to get him to a QUALIFIED HERP VET that is knowledgeable about dragons. This looks very serious.
The wonderful world of bearded dragons is a magical land of mystery, enchantment, cuddles, love and, worry! A mysterious realm where things always seem to change in an instant and, the moment you think you have it all figured out, the rules change! You think you own your dragon, guess again. You are now a slave!!!

Yes it looks like a burn--- how close is he to the heat lamp?

Thank you it's quiet a big heat lamp so possible for her to touch. When I'm home I'll take a pic. 👍

Get some pics of the tank showing how close she can get to the lamp and post more pics of the wound area as well.

Hello,

At first glance, it does look like a burn, but, it could also be fungal.
We do need to see the tank setup though, to see how close to the heat lamp she is getting.
What wattage is the lamp?
Are you able to get her to the vets?
