    Hi all, I would like some help before I visit the vet.

    My gecko had an eye infection which is being treated and the treatment is working super. He is much, much better.

    What is worrying me is sort of a wound/ulcer (don’t know what it is) under his left eye.

    He is eating and pooping normally and also shedded last week. Below are the pics. Any idea what it might be and coarse of action?

    I also noted that he is rubbing his left cheek with the hide in the vivarium. could it be a rub mark?

    His vivarium is being cleaned regularly and disinfected with a steamer. Water changed regularly. Feeding on mealworms and occasional super worm. Temp is constant at 33degrees on the warm side and 29 degrees on the cool side(being summer)68249259_10157577900382728_7922861415709278208_n.jpg68302383_10157577898872728_2573562206402641920_n.jpg

    To me it looks as if it's related to whatever infection is there. Maybe there was a pus-filled area that burst. Whether or not the gecko has been to the vet for treatment, I think it needs a return (or initial) visit.
