Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with interest in Reptiles and reptile Rescue.
If the aural abscess is open you can take a q-tip with some Betadine that is diluted with water to a tea color and clean the open abscess. This is a disinfectant and will not damage the tissues. allow it to dry and then apply the Neoposrin to the abscess. This should allow the abscess to heal from the inside out. If it is sealed, then please use warm salt compresses to open the abscess. Once open follow the instructions above to treat the abscess.
Please let me know if I have addressed your concerns. If I have please rate my service positive. If I have not please hit reply for further help.
