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.

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
