    My curiosity got the better of me so I searched "vetericyn plus spray for poultry" & found the active ingredient is hypochlorous acid. Then searched that- there's multiple links for using that- including this one: https://www.rxlist.com/alevicyn_hypochlorous_acid_topical/drugs-condition.htm The following is an excerpt: & just between you & me, "burning & stinging to the application site" would NOT make me want to use it on my snake. I'd get some Silvadene cream, personally.

    Good to know- I'm sure Vetericyn for poultry is far more likely to be carried in local feed stores than the version for snakes, lol.

    If I had a herp with a mystery condition especially one that I didn't know the cause of, I'd get it to a vet ASAP. They're good at seeing medically significant things that hobby keepers looking at photos can't.

    Re: Rescue situation, newer keeper

    Sure, thatís fair. We just got him yesterday, and itís likely that my reptile vet will be about 3 weeks out. Theyíre very hard to get into, and the only one we have in town. Iíll give them a call when they open on Monday. Iím just dealing with the holding pattern.

    Bit of an update here: my vet canít get to him for a couple weeks so we are doing the Betadine bath every few days. I also gave him an electrolyte bath because he is so dehydrated his eyes are crinkly and heís saggy/wrinkled. Iím waiting on some silvadine cream and in the mean time using some vetericyn to help his back. After the soaks, heís just losing dry skin like confetti in individual flakes.

    Unfortunately today a couple brown scales actually came off. LikeÖthe scales. Exposing the skin underneath. I called my vet back, and even though he canít get in, they want to get him on antibiotics asap.

    no more live mites at the moment, but as we did in the past, mite treatment will
    continue past 30 days.

    Could this be the beginning of slipped skin disease? It's caused by a vitamin deficiency and it usually shows up in neglected snakes. Here a long thread on it: EMERGENCY | My Ball Python's Scales Just Split.
