Breathing Issue/Nose Clogged

Member
My beardie seems to have one of her nostrils clogged. Something dark in color appears to be clogging it and she is having a bit of a struggle breathing, her mouth is open most of the time even when she is not basking as she tries to breathe. She is currently in shed, but that does not look like shed to me. I am not using any loose substrate. The substrate I am using is tiles. Temps and UVB are all on point.

Have anyone encountered such a situation? Does it eventually go out by itself?

I have attached some pictures

@KarrieRee any suggestions?

Is it possibly a piece of food ? She will probably end up blowing it out eventually -- I can have ahbd take a look and see what she thinks --

That's usually shed, it should come out eventually. They usually mouth breath for a while off + on like this.

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

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
