I believe that my Dumeril is starting to develop mouth rot I am not 100% sure about this, but you can look at the attached picture (I know it might not be too clear but holding a snake in one hand and I camera in the other is not that easy).



Can someone tell me what I can do to heal this? The cage temperatures and humidity are monitored and are OK. I don't see any visible infections on the snake, the stools look OK.

I believe the problem could be stress related because I got him a couple of weeks ago and he had difficulty feeding, although he did feed eventually. The change of environment could also have contributed to the stress.

Unfortunately, the possibility of taking him to a vet is non existent because of the lack of a reptile knowledgeable vet in our region.

Can someone recommend any kind of medication I can give him before it gets too serious?
