S skin under s chin has changed to a dark color almost over

Customer Question

His skin under his chin has changed to a dark color almost over night
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the reptile's name and age?
Customer: He's a bearded lizard amd abpout 18 months old
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Amd?
Customer: He recently had a cut on his tail that is nw clearing up, we would peroxide it then put on Neosporin. He has a good appetite
JA: Is Amd bleeding a lot?
Customer: No bleeding. TYhe scales built up around the cut but we've been bathing him and the lump of dead scales feel off and you can see new tissue regrowing over the old wound
JA: Phew. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Veterinarian about your situation and connect you two.
