I would dilute some raw unpasteurized honey with some luke warm water and use a qtip to dab it on that area for several days, and keep an eye on it.

Hello,

That looks like it could be a little fungal issue but not sure. As suggested, you can try the raw honey on
the area to help out in case it might be fungal. Hopefully it's just some retained shed that will gradually
shed off.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
