    Do you know what caused it? Start by getting rid of the problem if you can.

    To treat her, soak in 1% betadine mixed with water and use an antibiotic cream (Neosporin). Keep her dry and disinfect the enclosure with a bleach solution. Do this everyday for a while and it should clear up in the next shed if it's mild. I'm no expert and still suggest you see a Vet or at least consult with one. Good luck!
