    Default Gecko Has Wound on her Nose- It Won't Go Away!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My girl, Ren, has had a small wound on her nose for about 1.5 months now. It was a bit weepy when she first got it but now it is just a black hard scab(?). Her skin around it is almost slightly peeling, I can move the loose skin with my fingernail lightly. Im not doing this, just describing what it's like. She has shed once since she got the wound and thats when the possible scab formed. It's as if the wound isn't on the surface of her skin, but a bit deeper. She's still acting normal. I'm just wondering how long this will take to heal or if I should seek a vets help.

    Thanks, pictures below-

    It's a bit hard for my old eyes to see. I would imagine the problem is that she sheds before the wound has healed and in the process of shedding she pulls the scab off. you could try putting just a little bit of bacitracin on it to soften the scab and maybe it will come off naturally before the next shed.

    Sorry for the late reply! I appreciate your help! Ren shed the other day and the scab/wound is completely gone and she's looking great!
