Femoral Pores Coming Out

I know this is a pretty common question but my dragon has had his femoral pores like this for some time. Whenever we give him a bath they loosen up but never come out. A few days ago he was out in the sun outside and then went to sit on some wet concrete and I noticed some of the femoral pores were coming out. Now they are hard again, should I soften them and try to push them out?

Yes soften them up again - you can also use coconut oil w/ a soft baby toothbrush to get it on the pores - and gently squeeze they should come out

I heard to squeeze until the yellow/orange becomes white. Do I have to put something on them afterwards to stop infection?

When the pore is flat its out -- they build up a wax that can make them protrude like a candlestick that is when you want to soften them up and try and squeeze them out --- you dont want them bleeding but sometimes that can happen -- if they do that dab a bit of raw unpasteurized honey on it and it will stop any infection --

Does neosporin work?

Personally I wouldn't do anything to them. They don't look enflamed or anything and if they are coming out in their own there's no reason to take matters into your own hands. You could add something rough to his enclosure if you don't have something in there to let him work them out himself.

I would say yes but nothing w/ pain med in it --
Do you know if this would work? If so I might use it if he gets small cuts or scrapes.

I would use raw honey rather than that but either one is fine for small wounds. Does he have any areas that are cut or are you just thinking of having ointment on hand for the future ? But his pores don't need anything done.

Okay, he had a small cut beforehand which luckily healed on its own. It’s just in case. I think Im just going to give him regular baths and rough things to rub against.

A flat piece of sandstone, or flat walkway pavers from you local hardware are great options. You can use any rock though just make sure to sanitize anything you might happen to pick up outside.

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

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?
