    One of my whites has 2 sore toes, they are all red and swollen, but no puss or signs of bad infection. What could cause this, and how do I fix it? we don't have any good herp vets in this town :( The conditions in the tank are the same, 85 degrees, 80% humidity. He is still eating, and seems to be fine otherwise, any suggestions?

    Lower your humidity to about 60 - 70 %. They don't need it that moist. It's possible he got them mashed/stuck some place.

    Do I need to treat them with anything? Diluted peroxcide perhaps?

    Peroxide despite popular belief is not a good cleansing method. Like Liz said, just let them heal. Lowering your humidity will help with healing.
