Hello.
Ok my beady was running around and her shedding skin got caught on a blanket and it ripped the skin off. She now has exposed flesh and the skin that came off looked like it had puss or something on it. She doesn’t seem bothered but im really worried.

Closer image has just happened and other I’ve only noticed so think might have happened before

Please get some raw unpasteurized honey on it - it will stop infection and promote healing- please do not feed any crickets in the tank - any ones not taken out will go straight for the wound-- I would apply it 2 times per day and watch it -- if it starts turning black its infected but the honey should stop that from happening

I did this and I also bought some tamoden veterinary wound cleaner. It has a kind of scab over it now and she is walking on it fine but I’ll be cleaning and checking everyday. Thanks for helping

Hello,

How is your dragon doing today? The veterinary cleaner, tamoden should be just fine. If needed,
the raw honey is great for help with healing if any infection was to set in. Let us know how her foot
is doing.
