Hi guys, I have noticed a mark on a leg of my ranitomeya imitator nominat female.

There is a pair of them in the same tank,
I have them for 2 months now and didnt notice that mark earlier.

Female was very bold for first week then became more shy, right now male is very bold and she spends most of the time in a bromeliad.

Could you help me to identify is this mark something harmfull? Please

Could you point out what you are seeing? I don't see anything obvious.

How is the frog doing now? Were you able to figure anything out?

Thoughts are it could be some shed skin that didn't get removed, or could be infection.
Spray the frog down with water to see if it gets dislodged. If not, then consider possibility of infection.

The go-to treatments for skin infections are Neosporin (without pain reliever), polysporin, or silver sulfadiazine.
putting the tank through a dry season is also used in treatment as skin infection risk increases with too wet of an environment.

She is fine now,
I have seen have many times and couldnt notice anything on her leg anymore, so I assumed it must have been something stick to her.
The shed skin is most likely the best answer for that thanks.
