    It seemed some was starting to grow back right by the base of the neck...I was actually able to pop it, and sure enough a little bit of that stuff came out. Hopefully this is the last we ever see of it.
    That's uplifting news!

    Here's hoping Oreo's fungus is history!!!

    Update! Oreo is still eating fine, and is back up to his original weight, if not more. Unfortunately the fungus has come back though, and it's a large bump under his skin. It's pretty big already

    Oh my goodness! I wonder why Oreo is so susceptible to this fungus. Does your vet have any ideas?

    I'm glad to hear that he's gained his weight back and that he has a good appetite!

    He thinks it might be genetics.

    An update, perhaps the final one.

    We have finally figured out what is going on with Oreo. After two more of those growths appeared and grew, Oreo decided he didn't like them and ripped them off. Again.

    After sending these lumps in for a biopsy, we got an answer to what these were. Turns out they're a bacterial infection-like thing called Bacterial Granuloma, and not a fungus at all. It's a genetic issue, a problem with Oreo himself. We can go in if it starts up again, and there are some things we can do to get it to fall out before it becomes too big, but there is no way to prevent it from happening in the first place. It hasn't been coming back for awhile though, so I'm hoping for the best!

    Another gecko mentioned in this humungous thread, Spotty, has some problems though.

    She was up in my brother's room, and he didn't feed her or hold her right and I ended up having to do everything. Since she wasn't downstairs with my other geckos, often times I wouldn't be able to feed her...she grew much too skinny for my liking. We moved her downstairs, and now she's getting food and good attention regularly. I did, however, notice something wrong with her back legs. Not going to go into too much detail, but our doctor thinks it's Lymphedema caused by a heart problem.

    Wishing for the best!

    There's never a dull moment!

    Oreo is really tough! It must be somewhat comforting after all this time to finally have the Bacterial Granuloma diagnosis. Hopefully those granulomas will stay away at least for a while.

    Is Spotty gaining weight now?

    I send good wishes for them both.

    Yep, Spotty's gaining weight again. She's such a nice gecko!
