Fire skink mystery illness

Postby mike8hate » Tue Aug 11, 2020 6:46 pm

I have had my fire skink for about two years now, and she has been a pleasure, especially in how easy going she is compared to my tegu. She has had no health issues in thsoe two years, up until recently when a white small bump Similar to a pimple appeared on the tip of her nose. Within a few days it has doubled in size and grown quite larger than just a discolored scale. As of the past 24 hours an area behinde her ear on her left side, the same as the sid eof the bump has now become rather swollen and large. I have attached a few pictures, and was wondering if anyone could help me with a diagnosis and possible treatment.
Thank you, mike

I've not seen such a thing, but with reptiles things can go bad rather quickly so I'd seek the assistance of a qualified vet.
