    This is a photo of an old post but my daughter's frog has the same thing going on only it looks about 10 times worse. We've soaked her in Lamisil, as suggested, for the past two days but it seems to be getting worse. Does anyone know if they recover from this sort of thing? It looks bad

    I am no expert but that looks like a bad fungal infection =( What kind of set up do you have? How often do you clean it? Does the frog have any open wounds?

    We have had the same set up and the same frogs for about 3 years and this is the first time I've ever seen anything like this. She changes the water regularly, the other frog is fine. I don't think it can recover. It has no open wounds but it looks awful with the white stuff

    if you haven't already, I would separate the sick frog away from the healthy one asap. Fungal infections can be very contagious if that is what it is.

    Thank you for the advice. That was the first thing that we did, was separate the frogs. Yesterday was day 3 of the Lamasil and she seems to be making a little improvement. We'll give her a few more days and see how she does.

    Can we put neosporin or something similar on a fire belly toad to promote healing of an open wound?

    Yes, you can. However, it is VERY important that the neosporin have no pain reliever. Even a little bit can and will kill your frog.
