    Exclamation Scab on crested gecko


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    There's a black area around the armpit of my crestedgecko.jpg gecko. I just got him and don't know what it is. Could it just be a scab? What should I do?

    It's hard to tell from the picture. If it's a scab, it will be raised and look as if it could be peeled off (don't do that). It will ultimately come off. It could be a skin discoloration. I'd recommend you keep an eye on it and see if it changes. If you see redness, swelling or bleeding you will need to take it to a reptile vet.
