Hey everyone Im new to the forum and was hoping someone can help me. I just got a baby panther about 3 weeks ago from a reptile pet store he was fine and looked healthy. Now its been a few days and ive noticed he's been developing crust in his left eye but when I give hime a good misting and gently swipe it with a q tip his eye looks fine. His right eye seems to have some kind of "fold" or bump. When I mist him really good his eye looks like its almost bulging and you can see a bump under his skin. I'm really concerned as he is a pretty small baby and I dont want it to cause more problems than nacessary if I can help it. He lives inside my apt, his cage is big for his size so he's comfortable in there. Mist him 3-4 times a day, he has a UV tube bulb and red heating lamp that are on and off 12/12. Can anyone please help me understand what this is and what to do?? Thank you so much in advance!

It looks like something stuck in the eye. If the long mistings don't wash it out a vet visit may be in order.
