Palms/fingers irritated from digging (pics)


Sub-Adult Member
Hey guys I'm just relaying what my vet told me that my Amber's palms/fingers are irritated from digging. He told me to monitor her and if she is pooping eating basking and drinking that she should be ok?

I will be honest I haven't tried manuka honey on her finger I was gonna make sure it was ok with the vet. I'm a helicopter parent and I can't change it it's just how I am 😅😁. I was hoping the irritation/cut would heal on its own since she isn't digging/nesting anymore which caused the irritation and cut in the first.

The very last pic was AFTER she laid her first clutch last month on the 13th

She should heal, but reptiles heal a lot slower than mammals so it may take a little while.

Hopefully though luck hasn't been on our side lately she basically had her first ever clutch then she shed a bit and her palm healed.

Then she had her 2nd clutch and it came back on both palms included a little cut along with it. I can't blame her for being a good mom and burrowing her eggs dealing with the pain from her abrasions

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
