Yellow Fungus or Just Paranoid?

Would yellow fungus come off with a wet paper towel? Obviously I'm not asking about treatment, but I noticed yesterday that my lil boy has some bright yellow on his mouth. It resembles how his mouth looks after I give him food with bee pollen, but I haven't done that in a few days and I just noticed a change yesterday. Don't know how he could have gotten it as I haven't come in contact with another dragon in over a year.

It sounds like it was just a stain. Did you get a picture that you can post here ? Post a few pics of that area anyway to show what it looks like now, I'm sure it's not Y.F. if it just wiped off.

Thank god, and yes I did! You might have to look a bit hard to see what I'm talking about, it's at the forefront of his mouth. Also, the orange/yellow on his beard and around his eyes is just his coloring, that's not what I'm worried about lol.
First pic is before I rubbed some off last night, second pic is today.

that definitely looks like pollen to me. when sir henry eats he winds up with it all over his face and chin. cleaning him up reminds me of washing a pbj sandwich off a 3 year old! always some left over no matter how hard you try. :LOL:

I agree, yellow fungus definitely would not wipe off, it is literally on or inside of the scales. He
probably had food or supplements on his little face. His colors are great!

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.
