PostSubject: I Think Something's Wrong   1/10/2012, 3:53 pm

I've been quite happily lurking these forums for a while now but unfortunately, I'm really worried about little Frankie so finally got round to making account.
First off, he hasn't been eating. I know lots of people post about this and it's always nothing to worry about so at first I thought nothing of it. The problem is, it's been well over a month now. Also, he hardly ever drinks, though I mist him so that could explain why he isn't thirsty.
The main reason I'm concerned is that I had noticed some small, pale blotches on his cuticle. I monitored these and while they haven't gotten bigger over time, they seem slightly deeper as if the cuticle is wearing away. I'm worried this may be a bacterial infection though I've no idea how that could have happened. I don't have a camera so I'm afraid I can't upload pictures for a proper diagnosis but basically, I'm wondering if this sounds like a bacterial infection and if it is, is there anything I can do? I really don't want to lose him.

EDIT - Forgot to mention, he has been acting completely normally (other than the not eating). He's been just as active as ever and I still see him cleaning himself regularly. Not sure if that information helps at all.

Some pictures of the spots in question would be helpful. If you can't post yet I'm sure the GS or Bex will do it for you if you PM them the links.

Sorry for the late reply; I've been having wi-fi trouble.

Anyway, he has started eating again so that's a good sign but the white marks appear to be getting worse. As for pictures, I just bought a camera today so I'll get them up as soon as I can (I'm still trying to figure out how the camera works).
