Skin Fungi

Lizards Home > Library > Disease and Sickness
 
Fungi is a fairly common disease if climate conditions are not kept up properly. In most cases, skin fungi forms due to overall temperature being too low and overall humidity being too high. This end result of this climate is a cold and damp atmosphere.

Symptoms

If your lizard has skin fungi, patches of their skin will look discolored, but no pus will form. The skin may have bumps or raised areas, but most skin fungi affecting lizards stays flat.

Treatment

By the time the skin fungi becomes noticeable on the surface of the skin, it has already affected deeper layers, making treatment difficult. Fungi treatment ointment can be purchased from a veterinarian or a pet store specializing in reptiles. Many types of fungi look similar, so any one treatment may not work. Take your lizard to the veterinarian to get checked out, as they may be able to recommend a specific medication.
