Hello,

That isn't normal no. The bumps were present when you got him then?
Does he flinch when you touch his tail? For now, if you can get some raw unpasteurized honey
to put on those areas. His tail might also be getting ready to shed, too. Are the bumps hard?
You can try giving a bath also just to be sure it isn't something that would come off.
He has a nice long tail though!
Is he eating well for you yet, since you just brought him home?

Hey! The bumps are very hard and theres more on his stomach. I gave him a soak today and i saw some yellow coming off of him but none of the bumps disappear.

I went back to the pet store and checked the other dragons and one had 4 bumps, and some yellowing on the beard and the other dragon had somw yellowing on the bottom of the tail. Makes me very nervous about YF....however, the bumps dont look like any pictures of YF except dermatophilosis. He hasnt flinched when i touch them.

Getting him betadine and neosporin perhaps an antifungal while I find a suitable vet.

Only had him 5 days so trying to get him as much help as possible

Hello,

Those bumps aren't yellow fungus, thankfully. I am not positive what they could be other than
cysts of some type since they are hard. I am hoping that they will work themselves off with some
baths, etc but not sure. How many total would you say there are?

Let us know how he is doing.

So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
