So I’ve always been super aware of my frogs skin. Currently I have my 2 frogs in the same tank so this is where my worry comes in. I went away for 3 days (They had multiple water dishes and were fed ahead of time) and I came home to my one frog with a bright mark on his head, which he’s never had a perfect dot like that before. So automatically my worry was is it bacterial. But I decided to leave it be for 2 days and the first night after there was nothing I could see on his skin! But today the second day.. it seems to still be there just more faint? So I’m not sure where to go from here. Should I consider putting the one frog in quarantine? Hes eating fine, great activity levels, absolutely no clear signs of illness other than this dot that just seems to be lingering. Plus I dont want to cause any extra stress if I dont need to. Any advice would be appreciated. I just dont know what to take from this

(first pic is the day I came home and second was taken tonight when it sort of showed up again but more faint)

Has happened to my WTF twice in the past. It does not look like what shows up when you search for bacterial infections, but my guess is that thats exactly what it is. Good news is that both times it unfortunately showed up, just one or two days in a quarantine tank and it was gone. I didn't use any medicines or treatments whatsoever, just a clean tank, clean paper towel bedding, and clean water. Definitely make the quarantine tank more like home if possible to eliminate stress I'd take your other frog out too and put it in a separate quarantine from the one with the spot while you deep clean the tank that theyre staying in toghether. They sell terrarium cleaners, but I suppose you could use soap and water as long as youre totally sure that no trace of the soap remains. If you use a scented soap, smelling it after you rinse is a pretty good way to tell if its still there. I know this post is old, but no one answered yet and it could be helpful for people with similar issues, hope your frogs are doing well :)
