    I want to know if this scar will fade away? Such as the tail can regenerate. Can i help?

    How can I heal the scars of a gecko? And human scars treatment cream it be used with reptiles? is there another way, that can make the skin of the gecko is like old?


    Thank you.

    if it's healed, I wouldn't medicate. scars will fade somewhat with time. sometimes I've seen complete scale regrowth (with or without misshapen scales), but sometimes the scar will persist. unfortunately I don't think there's a good way to predict which way it will go, but I can tell you it will take a long time and probably improve just a little with every shed.

    speaking of shedding...I would watch the area closely for stuck shed near the scarring.

    what caused the initial injury? was it fighting with another gecko, rubbing against the cage...?
