unshed skin?

How long have you had the dragon and how long has the "dry spot" been there? Could it be unshed skin? Do you bathe the dragon in warm water occasionally?.. if not you should for about 5-10 minutes once or twice a week (luke warm). You should also spray the dragon with water daily. That will help unshed skin come off. I don't know what else would create a "dry spot".

:My BD has a dry spot on his head between his eyes, but more on his nose. The spot is a about the size of half a penny. He has had this for as long as I can remember, but I just recently started really thinking about it. I tried awhile ago putting water on it...thinking it was dry or dehrydrated in that one spot, but it seemed to get worse so I stopped doing it. He is not dehyrated himself though. I have done the skin test and I hand feed him water to make SURE he is not dehyrated. Yesterday I decided to try polyspirn (sp?) on the dry spot. I will check on him later to see how it is doing. I rubbed the cream in well but, he wouldn't be able to eat or lick the stuff anyway. It was funny because he was running around my room with a white spot on his head. LOL

:Any ideas what it could be? Was the polysprin (sp?) stuff okay to use. I have heard of lots of people using it for cuts and stuff.

:Thanks!
