I noticed that my beardie has two soft odd lumps near her legs but on her back sides. Also feels alittle bloated in her stomach but does not have a lot of stress lines. I feed her horn worms and blueberries occasionally, collard greens, peppers, peas, crickets, buffet blend, meal and super worms all dusted with vitamin powder and calcium although she is not eating as much the past 2 weeks. She’s pretty active when I take her out a few times a week, sometimes in her tank too. She was diagnosed with adenovirus virus 3 years ago when I took her to the vet and now is 4 years old gratefully, at least once a week since she was diagnosed I give her immune health liquid drops and also humidifier her with water mixed with F10 Sc veterinary disinfectant for 10 minutes which the vet said was helping the virus (since it’s fatal to beardies and don’t live very long having it) so I continued to do so. I’m not sure if it has to do with her virus or if it’s a cause or condition from something else? The pictures below are when she just had a bath, not as noticeable but before the bath it was when laying flat. If anyone may know what it can be from I would gladly appreciate your responses and thoughts on this!

I don't see anything unusual at all. Every now + then there may be a slight change around the stomach area but that's normal because of the relatively huge abdominal capacity. Think of how much they can eat and how much they can poo, there's lots of " storage space " in our beardie's bellies .

That makes sense especially if b4 I gave her a bath it was a lot more noticeable but it went down afterwards. If it becomes more visible again I’ll try to take a picture but hopefully it’s nothing and just a change in her tummy like you said. Thank you :)!

Hello,
I agree, she looks great for being adeno positive, too.
The irregular shape on the side of the tummy is normal. It definitely doesn't appear to be anything
serious like a cyst or abscess, etc.
She looks very sweet!
