    My Iguana Has a Lump

    Ok, so for a while now, my iguana has had lumps. And a couple months ago, the vet gave me some anti-biotics. To kill off infection. And all the lumps vanished. All but one. It is a lump the size of his nostril just under the nostril on his top jaw. It was small but it got bigger. And it started to get red. Becaue I am a preteen, I am flat broke. And I have been trying my best to earn some money. The lump is kinda squishy. So it is probably has fluid in it. And before it was red. But now it is white with a brownish area in the middle that feels like a scab. We have been cleaning it off with some beta-septic mixed with water. He is eating really good and his righting-reflex is really good too. I just need some help. Please.

    I agree.

    A vet is going to be needed to fix this.

    If you cannot get into the vet, maybe call them. Tell them what is going on and see if you can get some more antibiotics, since they seemed to work for the first lumps and it sounds like it is the same thing still?

    Maybe. I am saving up since it is $45 to go there. It kinda does seem to be irritating him, like it itches or something. Thanks guys.

    Lumps turn into abcesses and they can be deadly if untreated..by a vet..
    Antibiotics don't always do the trick!!

    Good news guys. The lump seems to be scabbing over and healing. And it has shrunk half its size since I posted this topic.

    It would still be a good idea to go in for a follow up visit to the vet to make sure everything is looking good.
