    Question My Gecko Has a Raw Red Nose, Could It Be...

    I noticed my leopard geckos nose is red and kind of raw/dry, could it be from nose diving after mealworms and rubbing the repti carpet? He acts normal, eats good ext... any thoughts? Thanks.

    That kid of irritation does sound like rubbing on something...just keep an eye on it...make sure it does not worsen. Look for any discharge. I have seen most wounds found to clear up and heal nicely on there own. In the event it does not, I would make a vet visit!

    Dab some Neosporin ointment without painkillers on it.

    Yea I was hoping it was nothing serious. I don't have any experience with leopard geckos, this is my first. I will get some neosporine today. Thanks everyone

    Do you have opaque screens on any of the sides of your tank? Most reptiles seem to have issues comprehending glass and will sometimes rub their noses along it until it is raw just trying to get past the irritating invisible force field.

    I've never seen him do that. His enclosure is covered on 3 sides. Its could possibly be from diving for mealworms and hitting his nose
