I dont know how this happened? A few days ago I noticed she had like a rub on her back, where she appears to be missing some skin. It could be she rubbed too hard against her cork. Now, she shed, which got messed up around her wound, and she got sand in it. It looks like a little spot of jelly on her. She eats fine, and doesnt seem to be bothered. Any ideas? Will it heal? Can I use some wound healing stuff by Zoo Med? I got a free sample pack when I bought some things. Ive been using a Q-tip with water to clean it up a bit, and I try and soak her every night. Should I put her on Paper towels? Any Ideas?

that little white spot on her back is normal.

Is it possible that she burned herself? Could be a mykosis,too.

its not a burn, although I can see how it looks like one. She has an overhead lamp, about a foot above her on another shelf on my rack.

A q-tip I think would slowly be able to work away the skin. When you try to soak her make sure to give her heat afterwards. You don't want the gex getting hypothermic.
