Dark Scale on neck fat, worried it could lead to infection


New member
I noticed this scale about a week ago. My bearded dragon, Iroh, is 2 years old now. This is my first reptile, and I am still learning. I thought his scales were dirty, and after a bath it remains the same. After looking closer I am worried this could lead to a bigger issue if left unchecked. I plan on vet assistance, however if a harmless home remedy can help i would like to try that first.

Do you have any pictures you could post? I noticed you had another post that I'll go check to see if you
posted any pictures there.
You can try using some silver gel or aloe vera gel on the area if it looks like retained shed perhaps.
If it is fungal, those will help too, if it is minor.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
