Drogon Mouth Sore

Hey Dragon Owners! My bearded dragon, named Drogon, had gotten a weird mouth sore, kind of yellowish and orangish. I took it to the vet and they said that he does not have any signs of mouth rot but gave me a medicine to treat bacteria infection. I have tried for about two months, I don't know if it worked but a scab recently came off and exposed a red sore! I have researched products to research such sores, and many have said Manuka Honey. I notice that there are different levels of UMF. Is there a specific number I should use for bearded dragons? Also, how does one safely open a bearded dragons mouth to see if there is such problems as mouth rot? I trust the vet, but just want to make sure. One last question, our red sores a common thing? What problem could my dragon have that started out as a orangish yellowish growth/sore, to a red sore? Thank you

Yes put some raw unpasteurized honey on it and Manuka is one of the best - please no crickets in the tank - I will have some others look at it as well

It looks like the gums are swollen or there is some irritation around the front of the mouth. This can be caused by different things, but is not uncommon. Sometimes it's just from them bumping up on things like the sides of the enclosure. I would probably avoid antibiotics for a long period of time, since that can have negative effects on them. Manuka or really any kind of unpasteurized/raw honey should help with healing and is likely to be the best tasting option. Dabbing the area with an oral cleanser like MaxiGuard gel might also be helpful. If the area starts to look worse, I'd probably go back to the vet for another check, but hopefully it will heal over and not cause a problem long term.

I really appreciate the help! I will try both products! ❤️

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!
