I agree. A good vet could culture that or look at a scrape pretty easily.I would think its worth a formal diagnosis, as a fungal thing, disease papule or encapsulated protozoa is often very specific in medication needs.
Any update as to how the Azureus is doing?Hey guys,
Wanted to respond and say thanks for the leads and recommendations. I'm reaching out to two vets. So far, one has said to move forward with applying 1% methylene blue solution to the spot with a q-tip daily and track for improvements. He feels it is worth a shot in the short term given that it should be a pretty harmless treatment strategy outside of stressing out the frog. He said he believes it is either fungal or a bacterial pustule. This one is a family friend so I trust his word, but want a second opinion before I do any treatment at all.
Hopefully the other vet is easy to access. I'd like to get a real formal diagnosis if possible (sample and lab would be great), concerned about cost and about accessibility given the crazy times right now. I'll update the post as things change or if things get better. Hopefully the frog ends up being okay. Still eating and behaving healthy today.
