I just noticed today that my frog has what seems to be an inverted eyelid...any suggestions as to what I should for her???

Here's a pic...its not very good...I'm working on getting another one if she comes out of hiding long enough.



Its the red area down in the left corner of her eye.

Here's a slightly better pic of her...



The red structure resembles something soft and slimy. Her eyelid on that eye had been looking funny the past two days but I didn't think much of it...cats and dogs and other animals close their eyelids funny sometimes with no severe consequences...

I don't think it's inverted...i would say it's more of an infection or irritation.

It does look irritated. Any sign that your frog is rubbing its head in that area (either against something or with a leg)?

I don't think so...the eye had been kind of closed looking(making her look like she was squinting out of the one eye) about 2 days ago but the redness just appeared today. Both frogs just got moved into a 20L from a 10 and she has been rather shy since then...rarely coming out. I will keep a close eye on her behavior over the course of the weekend and see if I catch her doing anything to irritate it.
