I NEVER said that the bump had anything to do with red leg. He had said in the other forum that before he bought the frog, it had a tank mate. That tank mate died of red leg the day before he bought it. I said that he may have come in contact with it, that's all. I never associated the two. I thought that I posted that, but maybe it was worded incorrectly or you just didn't understand. I never said that one had to so with the other. Period.
Secondly, lets say the bump was hard, unmoving, and caused the frog pain. It also had a slight red color to it. But the owner didn't see it that way or notice those things, and described it differently. My point was that it is hard to diagnose something just by hearing about it no matter how experienced, and sometimes it is more beneficial to have someone look at it. But whatever you say. Regardless Mark needs to find a vet anyway in case something serious ever does happen while he owns this frog instead of waiting until the last minute. Surely you can agree with that. I said before that it may be something harmless like a cyst, but I'll never be 100% sure of a diagnoses on anyone's animal over the Internet unless I can see it. I had a Whites develop dermatitis once from a plant, and when I asked what to do about it, I received many posts telling me that my frog had red leg and was going to die. It wasn't their fault, but haw accurate can you be with a fuzzy picture and a vague description?
