    Default Black dot (like a scab) on tip of toe

    So, my geck has a bit of a scab like thing on her toe. She's had this for a while now, and has always had trouble shedding on that specific toe alone. I always help her out in removing it a day after her shed. Please excuse the pajamas 64692079-ADEC-4844-AD88-30F77C997EED.jpg

    I'm guessing that during one shed she got a little cut right at the nail base and there's a scab. You could try getting some human antibiotic ointment and putting some on so possibly she will lose the scab before the next shed.

    Please make certain that any antibiotic ointment like Neosporin does NOT contain a painkiller.

    Okay! Thank you guys, she had shed last night and there's less scabbing. I'm going out of town for 2 days but I'll make sure to buy some non-painkiller neosporin for her on the way!

    Hi! My Leo had a huge problem with this when I first adopted him. I have used betadine solution (you can search how to use this online) to disinfect wounds and a pain-free Neosporin solution a couple times a day (which you’ve been told about). It’s nothing to worry about, just keep an eye on it and make sure he has adequate humidity and a moist hide!
