Beardie Scraped Himself?

    So I think Thorn may have scraped himself on something, one of his toes is a bit red and irritated and the back of his arm had a bit of blood on it- it doesn't seem to be bothering him and I gave him a bath to help clean it out some. Is there anything I can put on it or do to help it heal faster or should I just keep an eye on it?

    Betadine (medicinal iodine) will disinfect and help healing. I have used hydrogen peroxide as well at times, but I have heard it slows down healing slightly (not sure if that's true). Sometimes if it's a bad enough cut I will treat with antibiotic ointment and put them on paper towel substrate.

    Btw I must point out the irony that "thorn" got "pricked" lol
