My veiled cham has a small cyst forming between his eyes on his nose .. "V" area. I will add a picture later...but has anyone else seen/heard of this...and how serious is it?
They can form abscesses under the skin that need to be cleared out. Sometimes they start from an infection in a sinus or nasal passage. Herp abscesses don't really drain on their own because they don't contain the liquid type of matter as in mammals. The stuff is more cheesy. As the lump is getting larger something is accumulating there. I had a healthy wc verrucosus who developed something like this. The vet first scraped the skin to see how deep the lump actually was, and ended up opening a pretty large abscess that extended through to the cham's mouth (not necessarily the case here, but to give you an idea how these things can slowly grow for quite a while). He opened the lump, flushed the whole area, we gave the cham a course of antibiotic based on a bacterial culture sensitivity test, and he healed without further problems.Here is the cyst like thing im worried and curious about..
