    Scale Rot

    Is this scale rot? If so, I removed substrate and switched to dry paper towels with no misting to keep humidity low. I will be cleaning the tank and all decoration with water and vinegar then putting more paper towels down. Do I need to treat with some sort of product or will low humidity and dry substrate until the week before next shed be enough to treat this case?

    Looks it, but not a vet

    I have dealt with early scale rot, what you did was correct. Add to the treatment is every day for 7-10 days Id put a diluted drop of Bernadine on the troubled scales and rub it in and let it sit for ten minutes. Wash off with warm water. Pat dry. Then a tiny tiny bit of normal antibiotic first aid ointment and rub that on. Give it a week. Let shed, should be fine. If not, vet trip.

    There is absolutely NO need for treatment, in this case soaking and antibiotic ointment would only make the matter worse (you need to know when to treat and when not to)

    At this point clean environment that is not damps is all you need, it will be gone after the next shed.
