In Reply to: Help needed for possible fungus on beardeds.... Please read posted by Hanover Herps on May 07, 2003 at 23:27:54:
I just got done reading several pages of what this is. It is what is known as "Yellow Fungus" I have found several good sources of information, treatments, and help. If anyone else has this problem, contact me and I'll send you in the direction I went looking for a fix. Finding the meds I will need for these guys may be tough, so if anyone who reads this knows where/if I can order them on-line anywhere, let me know.
I just recently rescued (unfortunately had to buy them!) a group of five bearded dragons from an incompetent ass. These guys are not doing well at all. I am most likely going to lose on tonight as he doesn't look good at all. They all have a yellow fungus looking problem with their skin. They have yellow blotches on their bellies accompanied by sores as well. Some also do have a few sores throughout their bodies as well. A few of them seem fine, acting okay and eating. Two of them are not so well. They are acting lethargic and not feeding much at all. Does anyone know of an ointment or anything I can use on them to help clear this up, and what about an antibiotic as well? I did'nt think a skin disorder of this nature could kill them. But, that's what it seems like it is going to do to at least two of them. We really don't have any vets close by that are willing to deal with them, as they seem to look down upon reptiles and such. Any help would be greatly appreciated! You can post it here, or e-mail me with any useful information at firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!
