    Default Lower Lip Damage


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hi all,

    It's my 'problem' gecko again... (bless her!)

    So my gecko has what appears to be a bit of skin/scales missing on her lower lip. She had mouth rot a while ago and this was the area I first saw the yellow gunkiness. Mouth rot is all clear but she now has this 'bald' patch. I wasn't sure if this was down to the mouth rot (as it was caught super early and cleared up quickly) or from her nose-rubbing, which I noticed her doing recently.

    When I noticed her nose rubbing I immediately covered the two glass sides and now cover the front of the glass when she's particularly active, and I no longer see her pacing + rubbing her face on the glass.

    So, my question is- does it look like the skin will grow back? Or is this permanent damage? It's a little pink on the photo but now it's just like white skin.

    that looks like scarring, but if she's rubbing her nose it could easily turn into another wound. does she have a lot of cover? how big is her cage? can you post a photo?

    she might be stressed and feel exposed. I would increase the fake plants at least twice.
