Hi there. My name is***** will do my best to help with your question.Would you be able to upload a photo on here to give me a better idea of the blister? You can use the little paperclip button to upload a photo from your computer.Roughly how far down her body is the blister, if the tip of her 'nose' is 0% and the end of her tail is 100%, and 50% is her exact middle? Do you recall if this was approximately the region that the vet gave the injection?
Okay, sure. Does it appear fluid filled, or more like an air pocket?
Okay. That would be good.Just in general, snakes can develop an imaginatively named condition called "blister disease" which can be due to a whole range of factors, including excessive enclosure dampness, burns, infection, skin infections, mites, bite wounds. If there is only one small blister and it is round and discrete, it would be worthwhile waiting and monitoring until the snake sheds as you may find it resolved with the shed. If it is still there or if you find new ones during that time, then further investigation and specific management of the likely contributors can be done.But I'll let you know if your photo gives me any other ideas.
Okay. Sounds good!
