I've had amazing success with silver sulfadiazine - you'll need a prescription from the vet.

I leave the turtle out of the water for a couple of hours while I apply it. (dry the infected area first and apply liberally)

Also add some salt to the water.

I've used it several times with almost 100% success, but smaller turtles are more fragile.

Good Luck!!!
