    Yes, once the conditions are supportive a vet visit would be in order (if there are noticeable quite serious problems it would be advisable). No medication will work if it`s environment is lacking.

    You need to put the hygrometer all around the enclosure.

    Move it around to get an idea what the temps/humidity are throughout the enclosure, yes, leave the water heater on 24/7 I never switch mine off.

    From the photos I would say definitely infected, continue with the diluted iodine until you see the vet.
    This is a pure guess, but I wonder if the previous owner used a harness around the back legs and that`s how the injuries occurred?

    Did you apply some diluted iodine, and did you wipe off the Neosporin first?
    Edit: Has the wound been bleeding at all?

    When you get the chance, wipe off the Neosporin VERY gently then apply the diluted iodine, if possible take a few photos of the area again. I`m around 5 or 6 hours ahead of you so it may be tomorrow (sunday) my time when I answer..

    Don`t waste money on a humidifier, if you install a larger water container and heat the water to around 80 to 85f it should keep the humidity reasonable so long as the enclosure is well sealed (no gaps around the door, elsewhere). There is no "perfect" humidity figure, it needs to be a range, the lowest will be around the basking area (heat bulbs), higher in the cooler places.
    Can you show a couple of photos of the whole enclosure including the basking bulbs as it is right now?

    I already had a humidifier put it in his enclosure and it seems to keep it roughly 65% humidity with 85 degree temp still dont know how hot it is under his che and the other basking bulb in his enclosure i was curuous about the humidifier should it b down lower or should it not b in there at all and also he seems to get water dropplets comming out his nose everyonce in awhile like when it really starts getting hummid in there

    Why are you still using the CHE at the basking site, I thought you`d bought two flood beam par 30 or par 38 halogens? Again, the CHE will dry out the air and it will not heat the iguana`s body nearly as efficiently as a halogen..
    I cannot make the point strongly enough, the animal`s immune system is already compromised at least to some extent, it requires optimum conditions to thrive (and heal) you must get the basking surface temp within range and use the most effective heat bulbs (halogens).
