If it is in fact a burn. Which it does look like it is very possible although the pattern is odd to me. Then you want to get silver sulfadiazine cream from the vet for it. You will not wash it off. You will keep applying it to it. Typically 2 times a day generously. This will treat underlying infection as well as the burn so that it can start healing.Update:
Attached are two photos from today. Literally the day I posted this thread Cam must have jumped down to his cricket box and on impact, busted his tail open. I only assume he busted his tail open because it was not showing “fresh skin” when I posted the thread, and after I found him on the floor trying to get his crickets, I could see some pink skin… I put some bacterial ointment on it using a q-tip day of, and today I just got done spraying it with water to clean off the ointment for a fresh dose.
Another chameleon lover posted a photo of their cham recovering from a burn, and the look of the “fresh skin” on their cham looks about the same as mine. All the signs are pointing to a burn.
What do you all think about these new pictures?View attachment 307130View attachment 307131
