Hi, recently my bearded dragon has started to have 2 strange growths on his head. 1 on the top of his head one under his mouth. They look like spikes and are very hard. The skin around it has also gone somewhat flaky. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
Thanks,

Some type of wart like growth. It may just fall off on it's own but you can put antifungal cream on it [ like Lamisil ] but be sure not to cover his parietal eye. If you are worried, have a reptile vet check it out.

Thank you for taking a look. I’ll try that and see how they get on and then take them to a vet if it doesn’t get any better.
