:(alcomicin, baytril) the veterinarian has told that it concerns an infection
:bacterial.

:this is the symptoms:
:- itís seems like a problem of moult
:-he loses little boils of skin where are here lips
:-he has moulted but is scales are bizarre
:- he seem like its scales are always dirty
:- the inside of the sill of its lips is yellow and no pink like itís supposed to be

:I would like to know what problem of health it could be more precisely and
:in the various case how to process them.
:I worry a lot for my lizard, I go to the veterinarian but she can do anything
:thank you advance

:
The interior of the mouth seems to indicate anemia which most likely is caused by a parasite load. I would have the vet do a fecal analysis & then used either fenbendazole or praziquantal if the test is positive. Also, the shedding problem may indicate dehydration; therefore, you may want to hydrate the lizard in luke-warm water for 20-30 min. periodically; monitor the lizard as you do this & make sure the water does not exceed the should level of the lizard. Goodluck
