Burn or yellow fungus

I’m worried my bearded dragon may have yellow fungus. He hasn’t been in contact with any other bearded dragon his entire life but he has developed some spots that resemble a burn. It could possibly be a lamp burn as I just replaced one of my basking bulbs and these spots started developing soon after. He hasn’t been acting any differently and is still eating consistently. Any advice?

How far away is the basking bulb? It should be no closer than 6 inches-

He was relatively close (around 4 inches) to it for about a week while I was back at college. Came back and moved his hammock about 3 inches down from the bulb. I only had it that close before because it never had seemed to bother him. It’s possible this bulb is somewhat stronger than the last one I had.

Please get a surface basking temp w/ a digital probe thermometer- how old is he? In the meantime you can put some raw unpasteurized honey found in your organic food section - please no crickets left in the tank - it will promote healing

Okay sounds good. I’ll keep checking the temperatures daily. Should I use the unpasteurized honey all over the yellow spots? How long should I leave it there?

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!
