Hello group,
Today I noticed my juvy male iguana had an injury on the 'ridge' portion over his left eye and foreward towards the snout.
It's like there's no scales in that area and the 'fleshy' layer underneath is exposed The area is fairly small, about 3-5 scales worth if that makes any sense. I dressed it with an ointment (neosporin), I've heard this can be used for small injuries.
However, I have also noticed him rubbing his head on his basking furniture. I thought at first
this was due to assisting the shed process. I notice him scratching the areas in shed with whatever limb he can reach with and I percieved this to be normal behavior during the shed
process. However I am concerned with the injury I mentioned above.

I would greatly appreciate good feedback from experianced herpers.

Thanx much,
Dave Jr.

hi group,
please disregard my post about the small injury on my juvy iggy. I found the cuase. He was simply trying to hunt for a way out of his outdoor enclosure. Trying to poke his head in all the nooks and crannies he should'nt have. I quickly remedied the problem and will continue with daily applications of neosporin.
