Is this scale rot?

My beardie has these scales on her belly! They are shrivelling up and I’m not sure if it’s because of an injury or if it’s scale rot! She’s had them for a few weeks now!

My guys all get like that now and then. It's never been an issue.

Hello,

A lot of them have scales that just don't want to shed off,
so they become dry & yellowish. They will eventually shed
off. You can give a few baths to help out also.

Thank you all for your answers! I can rest easy now! I was a bit freaked out! She’s my first beardie and I’ve had her for almost 2 years now! She’s my baby!

Hello,

It is hard not to worry about them, we have all been there!
They can worry us to death over the smallest things. I am
sure she will shed all of that off eventually & have her nice
white belly back again!

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
