    Exclamation HELP something is wrong with my geckos foot :(

    I live in the dorm and have a limited ammount of money so might not be able to afford much from a vet so if anyone could know what is wrong or possibly how to fix this could you say something? I suspect that some of whatever is on her foot is calcium sand I sprayed her hand a little (it looked worse before) but dont want to stress her out too much it looks like her hand is slightly inflamed and she is standing on it slightly funny....she is still walking around mostly normally and climbs around still but when she stands stlil sometiems she misteps and stands on it wrong like its slightly numb or...odd feeling this is some pictures of it...her foot was completely normal two days ago the 2nd picture is actually a picture taken of her on saturday(april 3rd) (today was the day I noticed her foot looking odd monday april 5th)



    could it be a fungus? her substrate is paper towel and I keep her cage clean and get her clean water every other day....she climbs around alot so maybe she scraped her hand or something? any ideas im very worried

    I have no idea but the first thing I would do is give her a soak so I could look at really well. I am sure someone will come along later with more info. I am so sorry and I hope she gets better soon.

    is she housed alone? is the grainy stuff on her foot sand or calcium kinda hard to see with that all there , a good soak in warm water for 10-15 min possibly could be some stuck shed n there constricting her blood flow but at the least it woould clean it up for a better pic . is there anything in the tank sitting up a bit that could have fallen on her or something high like a branchshe could have fallen off? looked kinda red ontop not sure if that is just her coloring or not. Could you post a pic of both feet to compare? I have female who is very fat and her legs look swollen if just looking at 1 but she has rolls on all her legs lol. might help, she is getting around ok?

    theres a Styrofoam backing on the tank that she likes climbing on and the grainy stuff is calcium, shes getting around just fine she was actually running laps around the tank while I was trying to get a good picture of her foot but every once in a while she steps on her foot kinda funny...like I said as if its slightly numb or odd feeling thats how her leg usually looks (chubby arms) xD but i'll get a picture of the other foot to make sure when I soak her after school

    Cute gecko, looks like my sparky.....Could something have fallen on her foot? Can I asked what you have taped to the side of the tank? Is that a thermometer?

    Looks like she walked through the water and then vitamin/ca powder to me, I dunno! How did the warm soak go?
