Hi, it's nice that you're trying to help out your friend's beardie. Are you sure it's yellow fungus and not an infection from an injury? The reason I ask is because both would be treated very differently. Take a look at these pictures and let us know if it looks similar and then let us know: http://www.beautifuldragons.503xtreme.com/yellowfungus.html

In the meantime, I wouldn't suggest that you use alcohol on it no matter if it's fungus or an infection. The safest thing to do would be to bathe him in a diluted betadine solution or use witch hazel.

Let us know if it does or doesn't look like the pictures and we can help further. :wink:

No, please DO NOT use alcohol. Thanks Ljean for reposting that. Hopefully she read it in time. :eek:

Would it be possible to post a picture?

In the meantime, get some Betadine and witchhazel as well as an over the counter cream like Lamasil. Give him a bath in the Betadine with water, it should look like weak tea. Use the witchhazel as an astringent and wipe the area with a soft cloth with the witchhazel on it. Once that dries, apply the Lamasil to the area and rub it in. Do this once a day but be sure that the beardie is not put right under the basking area when the fungal cream has been freshly applied because it may cause a burn. Let us know how it goes.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
