I am not sure what you could do other than cause him a lot of discomfort. The main problem with abscesses in chams is that the contents are not liquid and easily drained. You can't just stick a needle in to remove it.

I would also think that any competent vet (with a consultation to another herp vet by phone) could open the abscess and clean it out.
