Hi, Gorgeous critters you have. Well from pic it appears to be some sort of blister disease, looks like clear filled blisters in many areas, I see them on back and legs.

Since SOME blister diseases can come from humid/ wet or dirt enviornment and yours looks very nice , there are other things that can cause oozey blisters such as any kind of toxic chemical that may have been used in his cage and there is some sort of residue left behind..... OR they can also get a "TOPICAL Salmonella" which would look like clear filled or oozy blisters.

IN any case it is pretty serious and I would act fast on it because he has the broken leg, and probably already is stressed, and his resistance is down. So whatever this is could spread or make him go down hill faster than normal. He's too darn pretty to get sick

I would get that Vet on the phone asap, maybe it was something he put on him? Or gave him?

** Maybe he is having a reaction to something, the dressing thats on his leg ???? Anything different that was put on him?

** While waiting to see Vet I would soak him in a nice warm Betadine or povidine(spelled wrong) solution, a few times a day. Pour in enough to make Light tea colored water, hold him in, and let him soak abit. Dry well. But do not RUB try to NOT break any of those blisters until ya know what they are. So as to not spread them.

Let us know how he is .
