1. Soak dish, large. If any external parasites are present, they will likely be drowned within 30 minutes if your snake soaks well. I keep large soak dishes (salad bowl size) in all of my vivariums and I have NEVER had mite problems.

2. Antibiotic ointment? If an infection is present, you can use the same topical ointment on a reptile that you use on your own skin.

3. Veterinary if this continues. I've not seen anything like that, either, and it could be a major infection.
