Ok, I am at my wit's end here trying to get this turned around. I have a juvie (less then 1 year old), female purple albino reticulated python.... (And before y'all say "take to a herp vet," there isn't really any for ohhh... 300 or so miles - I'm rural)... About 2-3 months ago she got this round abrasion looking divot on the midline of her head right between the eyes. I figured that since she was growing and still cramming herself under her favorite log curl she was getting a rub spot. I flipped it over and she now uses it like a hammock. I've been treating with a polymexin B complex ointment every day with no turn around or signs of healing. Shes still alert, active, feeding great, no regurg, and its kinda hard to tell if she has any color loss (purple albino after all....). The latest shed shes had was a bit different, a bit stuck to the scab on her head. I soaked it off carefully and found that she now appears to have another smaller one starting up on the midline a bit closer to her snout. I am not finding much, let alone any pics so I can look at what the articles are talking about... Any advice?
