Hello everybody, I am Sebastian from Puerto Rico. My Sulcata looked like she was having trouble opening her eyes yesterday.Everything else was normal, she pooped and ate like a pig as always.
Today I gave her a bath, she pooped, but she was constantly rubbing her left eye with her leg and she finally got hurt (photo attached). After the bath I put her back in her enclosure, she went for the food and ate normally. I guess she had an eye infection but after she rubbed the eye she hurt herself. Is there a cream or something I could use? ple

You can try this, flush the eye out really good with sterile water, then apply Terramycin eye ointment. See what others say. This has been used in the past by other expereinced members
