Help! Yellow Fungus, or Regular Shed Coloration Difference?

Hi! My beloved beardie Rosy is a mature beardie, and just had a slight shed from her face. Her colors do sometimes change with a shed, and she’s eating, pooping, and acting normally. Energetic and healthy. But I don’t love the yellow tinge to her mouth. I’m going to get it checked by a vet anyway, just to catch it early if it’s yellow fungus. But I’d love some other opinions on it in the meantime, as I’m panicking. Hahaha. I love my baby girl, and keep her tank clean. But who knows. I just want to see if other beardie owners think this is normal skin coloration change after/during a shed, or if it looks like yellow fungus to them.

Thanks so much, my beardie beautifuls! Appreciate you!

Its coloring along w/ shed -- that is not YF
Yes. And it looks like the head scales about to shed are that underlying yellow color underneath of them, if you look closely. I just wanted others’ opinions to make sure it wasn’t the dreaded YF. Thanks so much for sharing yours. Much appreciated! She’s probably just fine, but I will keep an eye on it, because your only chance of saving them is catching it super early with that. I agree, though. Don’t think it’s YF. Thank you my dear.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
