I bought a baby turtle few weeks ago with white fungus.I treated her with Acriflavine and she was OK.Then I found a small scar in her carapace the same place where the fungus were before the treatment.But the scar is getting bigger(it looks like white plastic) and it is almost perforating the shell.I didnt know what was happening with her until I read in the INTERNET about the "hole in the shell"disease.It looks like that?What can I do to save her? Should I start with the Acriflavine again? But I read also that the treatment against fungus can cause an increase in the bacteria.That's true? The "Hole in the Shell"is caused by bacteria or by fungus??
