Yellowish scales on mouth? Yellow fungus?? Help??

Hey, I haven’t been on here

in a while but about a year ago we rescued an older dragon from an abusive home. She’s always been healthy active, and after getting used to us, has been a great pet. However tonight I noticed a couple yellowish/brownish scales on her mouth. It doesn’t make sense because she has no symptoms of any sickness. She did poop a watery poop today but other than that, she’s been drinking a lot of water, eating food and being active. I was told by my sibling that they noticed her shed coming off and tried to help but pulled off a scale that was not ready so maybe it’s that?? Can someone tell me if i should worry about these scales?? Help?!

Hello,

The colors on her beard are a beautiful yellow color! The discolored scales on & around her
mouth & lips area look to be pre-shed.
How long have the scales appeared this way? Sometimes after shedding, the scales take a
while to go back to normal color, or oftentimes the pigmentation can change some also.
I don't see any evidence of yellow fungus though!

We’ll I didn’t notice until tonight, however my sibling told me that they didn’t appear yellow until a few days after he pulled off the shed too early.

(sorry to respond again i wanted to add soemthing) yes, the grey around her lips and estes is deffiently pressed, however what i’m worried about is the one yellow scale and the brownish scale next to it.

Hello,

I think that the coloration is just fine. Sometimes there are variations in the colors on & or
around the mouth & lip area, especially during shedding.
