Yellow scales?

Hey this is drago, he is now a little under 2 years old. I just took him to the vet a couple months ago for an abscess on his tail. They have some antibiotics and cream and he hasn’t acted any different, except for sometimes he likes to rub his head on the carpet which I never noticed before but he usually just does it when he’s about to shed which makes sense. Anyways, drago has had some yellow spots on his belly for a while almost his whole life. I have asked the vet about it and she hasn’t been very helpful. “Like I didn’t pay her to help me😀” anyways, I’m not sure what to do about these scales but my cage temp is 100 and the cool side is 85 the humidity is around 25-30. I’m not sure if this is yellow fungus because I have done some research on it and none of the symptoms line up so I am very confused. I also give him a bath at least every 3-4 days, I use a toothbrush and I clean the things I use everytime. I hope someone could give me a little advice on what I could do to get rid of this myself or figure out what to do. I do have some cream from the vet that I got for the abscess, I’m not sure if that will work. But I’m willing to try anything for drago.

It does look like possible Y.F. The vet should take a skin scraping to check in a lab. I think that Drache613 can do it if your vet can't. For now you can get some Lamisil or Monistat cream at a drug store to apply daily. Don't bathe unless Drago gets poo on himself or otherwise gets very dirty. Offer water once a week with a syringe, slowly dripping it on his snout with a small plastic lid under his chin to catch the water.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
