Hello All,

Hope your babies are well.
I had to put my Nep, a three year old sweetheart, into a boarding home for a week. I did not like how it was not up to my standards on being clean.
However it was our only option as we had to go out of town.

Upon picking her up two days ago, these dark brown scales have appeared. The area she was in was not very clean. I did my best to try to clean it without offending the people who worked there. I will never board her there again. There are not many where I live.

I have given her multiple baths and this scales are actually this color. It is not dirt. Just so you know.

Anyway, Could anyone tell me what they think this could be?! I am very worried as I treat Nep like my child, no joke. I know yall get it.

Thank You Kindly,
Anna

Hello Anna,

So sorry little Nep had to be boarded, it is always stressful on the owner as well as the dragon. The scales do look a bit
off so I hope it isn't fungal in nature.
To be proactive, you can go ahead & get an anti-fungal cream such as lamisil or monistat to start putting it on the affected
area a couple of times per day.
See how that does for her & hopefully it will start to clear up. I would watch that closely for more changes so that it doesn't
start to spread if it does happen to be fungal.

Tracie Hello,

Thank You kindly for easing my nerves that day. I have been applying the lamisil multiple times a day and the spot is healing. We have a vet apt next week, so will find out if it is anything serious.

Thanks again! This community is great, I'm happy we all love our dragons so deeply. Best to you and your baby.

Hello Anna,

You are welcome, hopefully it is nothing serious. Maybe the lamisil will just clear it up before you know it!
I am glad you are having a great time here, we try our hardest to help as many as we can. We definitely
have a diverse group of people here!
Let us know how the vet visit goes & how your little Nep is doing.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
