My bearded dragon has a red dot above his eye. Does anyone know why this occurred or how I should help to heal it? (See photo)

Hello,

How long has this spot been present by the eye area?
Did he have any trouble shedding that you know of? It could be a skin tag or mole/skin growth. Has it gotten
any larger at all since you noticed it?
Is it hard or soft to the touch? If it appears to be bothering him, you can try putting some raw, unpasteurized
honey on it. Just be sure there aren't any loose insects in the tank.

Let us know how he is doing.

Thanks for responding!
We noticed it about 2 days ago.
He is about to shed his head area any day now it looks like we gave him a bath last night and after he dried off his head is more (smokey).
It has got a bit larger but not too much.
It does not appear to be bothering him at all.
We cleaned the tank last night thinking that might be the case and there were no insects.
The growth is still there and he is currently running around like a mad man.
I just hope it goes away soon.

Hello,

Just checking, you did try to gently rub on the area during a bath to be sure that it wasn't food? This sometimes
happens.
You can try using a warm moistened chamomile tea bag on the area at night to see if that helps reduce swelling.
Or possibly some silver gel, too. I'm glad it doesn't seem to be bothering him.

The spot appears to be lessening and he’s in good spirits.
Thank you so much for responding!

Hello,

That is really great news! I am glad the area seems to be decreasing in size, hopefully
it will just eventually go away altogether. At least he seems to be unaffected by it all thus
far!

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
