Hello,This problem needs to be addressed by a Herp Vet, but in the mean time we can do some serious first aid to help him. Keep him confined on clean moist paper towels. Double check your temps. Make sure he is not on a loose substrate, as we do not want anything sticking to the area.
I would like you to take some table sugar and moisten it into a paste, Place it on a moist paper towel that has been wet with Cool water. Apply the paste to the area of the Vent where the prolapse is.
The sugar paste may draw some of the inflamation out and make him more comfortable. After you remove the sugar paste you can use some sterile personal lubicant to keep the area moist.
This may be a rectal prolapse or a Hemipenile prolapse. The Vet will be able to suture the prolapse back in place.
This is a common problem in Reptiles. I can help locate a Herp Vet with a city and state. This will need to be done asap.
