Hey, one of my mints has a large blister thing on his head. Now I know not to bust frog skin unless it's infected, but this is getting a little sad. He (the only confirmed male in there) is tilting his head to one side, and I've seen him do this before but not for so long. My vet is gone for three weeks, so I can't even bring him in, and she is the only vet in town who will accept frogs. I'm wondering if you guys think that it would be a good idea to bust it and place some polysporin on it? I will be posting a picture, once my computer decides to behave. It looks even larger on the picture though, poor thing. Any advice from the experienced froggers out there?

who is ? I'm in Canada eh. I think it started out as a scratch from one of the broms in there, he likes to hang out in them. It's right on top of his head. He seems to want to move and stuff, and can still jump, just a little lobsided.

neosporin w/o pain killer. still contact dr.. mot sure if he can do anything but may be able to write up a prescription for your local pharmacy and avoid waiting.
hes notr in on the weekends but sometimes if you include a pic he will help. just say i referred you. i think popping it might open the sore to opportunistic infections even worse in my opinion. neospeion like i said with no pain killer for now. he is in the office monday, tuesday, thursaday, friday and sat. hope you can get this under comtrol and he gets better. kristy
