It might be, but then again it just might be a slight scrape from a rough object. At any rate, treating with the topicals you used won't cause any harm.

Is there a hard/gritty surface that could've scraped against the plastron? Dry substrate really minimizes the risk so I'd just keep putting athlete's foot cream on it until you're sure it's not rot (for peace of mind).
