Get Pet Questions Answered by Pet Experts
Are you sure you have a Male?
Do you see something sticking out from the area?
Is the area very red?
If you have the male and female housed together you need to separate them. The things you may be seeing are injuries from breeding. What can happen is the female will start lay eggs or get hurt from the breeding ritual and the male will wind up with a prolapsed Hemipenis. What you can do for the male is to take a moist paper towel with cool water and some granulated sugar and set him on it, this will help to make sure that if he is starting to get a hemipenal prolapse it may retract. The female cuts can be treated with some plain Neosporin without pain killer. Make sure your female has a lay box in her tank and plenty of calcium powder and the male is kept separate. In about 2 weeks you may notice her go off food and she may lay a total of two eggs each 2-3 weeks for the rest of the laying season. Joan Jav917

The pet shops are not the greatest source for knowledge.Let me guess that you are using sand as a substrate? Do you have a moist Hide?
The Site I gave you has some good people who can direct you in the proper direction.
I like a solid substrate because of impactions. Another thing is the do need a Fecal check by a Herp vet. If you need a listing for your area let me know. Joan Jav917
