Hello,

That looks somewhat like an abscess to me. Sometimes that can happen if a scale or some
tissue gets damaged somehow, then becomes infected. You can try to get some raw unpasteurized
honey to put on it, initially, to see if that helps out. How long has the bump on the side of him been
there, did it crop up suddenly?

Hello,

Ok, go ahead & try the raw honey on it, for now. You can also put that on the black scale too.
I am not sure what the cause could be other than a damaged scale that got bacteria trapped
underneath. It could also be fungal in nature, too. You could also consider some silver gel, too.
I sell Manuka honey & silver gel on my online website if you have trouble finding any!

Let us know how things are going.

Hello,

You are welcome. Let us know how things are going. Watch those areas closely, especially the
bump to be sure it doesn't get larger.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
