I SCREWED UP, i feel so bad my poor baby, i was trying to get their pores unclogged and I heard them wheeze softly, I instantly stopped and looked closely at the pore I was trying clean. It's pinkish around the pore, I think I screwed up bad. I instantly started craddling her while running to go get store brand neosporen on her pores, I'm scared. I don't wanna hurt my baby. I should've been more careful and should've just not tried to get them out. My poor baby oh god what do i do?

I think her scale might of gotten slightly detatched from her skin, there, if i leave her pores alone and let her legs alone, will it heal so long as i keep a close eye on it.

Gonna be 100% honest. I feel like a terrible mother and like a failure, I love my lil snuggle-wugggles to pieces but, I'm so scared of hurting her. I don't wanna lose her. Hell I don't want a single ounce of pain to happen to her. I just wanted to help her, and I ended up probably ruining her life. I'm so scared.

The pores look fine -- no blood - you can get some coconut oil on them use a soft baby toothbrush and that will soften them up - good stones for them to rub on will keep the pores down -

Don't try to squeeze them, do like Karrieree said and put coconut oil on them, and give a good piece of stone to rub on, also that is a male dragon 🐉 I'll attach a pic on how to tell. For stone sandstone, limestone, basalt, granite, slate, ect all work. Just make sure it doesn't have sharp edges that could injure him. If you pick it up outside make sure to sanitize it first.

I know how to tell, but she is definitely female. She had x-rays and I've checked her tail multiple times there are no bumps indicating she is male.

Also, had a friend recommend trying to blunt down a sewing needle, and making sure its dull and not sharp in the slighest, and softly rub it against the pores, is that a good or bad idea? My previous dragon didn't really have any issues with his pores, so I'm new to trying to deal with pores in specific.
