Skin blister disease is not something that can be carried by a snake or caught by a snake. It really just is a reaction by the snake’s skin from being kept on substrate that is too damp or dirty. Just like you may get a rash if something irritates your skin but you are not really a carrier of rashes. I have never heard of using CodLiver Oil for snakes, the only treatment that I read about for blister disease was to keep a very clean tank with dry substrate (but always keep a water bowl large enough for him to submerge in, as it can help with shedding). One book to consider getting is “What's Wrong With My Snake?: A User-Friendly Home Medical Reference Manual”
Hope this helps
:Can a KIngsnake carry Skin Blister Disease as I live in Scotland and he has little contact with other snakes.
:Also would adding CodLiver Oil Hypodermicly into his food sorce help.
