Scabs and glass climbing/rubbing

Postby BlueTongueBoris » Thu Jan 10, 2019 3:35 pm

I have had a post similar to this a few months back but now his nose is getting pretty bad, lots of scabs and keeps trying to climb or rubbing his face against the glass. I have 3 sides of his enclosure covered apart from the 1 front view, which is the one he'll start rubbing on. If theres any cream or something to put on his nose I'd really like to know!

Does he do it year round or has it been worse just recently? And what dimensions are your enclosure? As far as topical creams, you can use an antibiotic ointment like Neosporin for minor abrasions or coconut oil.
