Hey everyone I’m very new to this but a friend suggested going here first before the vet to get some advice. My leopard gecko has been having some trouble with shedding and it is my fault cause I haven’t gotten a proper humidity but he’s seem to gotten this bump on the side of his mouth that hasn’t seem to gotten any better especially with shed getting stuck in it and he doesn’t like it being touched. I looked it up and it said it might be from bumping it scratching it while trying to get shed off, but I need more in dept instructions, does anyone know what to do? Also sorry for the bad photo he was a bit squirmy.

I would definitely recommend a vet visit for bumps like that (and I see some crusty stuff near it, which may be shed or may be discharge) since whatever it is, is under the skin and there's no way for a non-vet to really treat it. I hope things go well.
