Looks good.

I think there is something stuck in there. See how one nostril is bigger than the other?

The skin in that area is very translucent, do you think the foreign object would be visible if she were to cover his eyes and shine a small flashlight at the nostril?

Fang has done something like that and found a tiny piece of sand wedged in there. :yikes

Do you know if Mandy has white sand or stone? If so, I just realized it's visible in the original photos.

:yikes

It's here on this current page too. The irritation coming back appears to be from the nostril unable to expel the foreign object on it's own. I think we've found the cause of it, I can see the same white dot in several photos that didn't heal, which I originally thought was a pus bubble. Taking a closer look through each one, it hasn't changed in appearance.

I've already said I think something is stuck in the nostril a while back, and encouraged trying to ascertain that that's the case. :o

That's also the reason why I thought it came back once the meds are removed. :(

I know, I just didn't realize it was that noticeable before. :donthit::o I hope his little nostril can expel it on it's own. :heart

My tank is bare bottom but there are little tiny pieces of gravel left over :( Could it be that? If he can't get it out on his own what do I do?

We can try to help him...but the first order of business is that I think you need to get very close to him and try to verify if there is an actual object lodged there. There may not be, and we just need to determine the case. :)

I will try that tonight and see if I can work out if it is something in there.

Ok, so I tried to get really close and shine a torch at it, but he was been very feisty today, he wouldn't relax at all. In some of todays pics it looks like I'm really squeezing him, I promise I'm not, was just how he was wriggling his position around in my hand. I gently touched his nose today and it seemed like something came out/off of it, I was going to get it for a picture but Bamboo Promptly ate it x_X

I honestly couldn't tell if anything was in there :(

This was before it looked like something come off/out

Does the white bump in the irritated area look like a solid object or more like a liquid? :hmm

The colour of the area looks to be improving a LOT! :D

I'm really not sure :( It's really hard to tell. I was trying to be able to get a feel of that area specifically but he just wont cooperate, and I'm really worried about stressing him too much :(

Let's just stay the course. Things are slowly improving, and I prefer that he handles it himself, if he can. :)

Todays Photos: See that spot where it looked like something was caught? Is it just me or does it look like sort of a bubble in that spot? Slightly different colour than his normal colour?

I do see it, but for now, I am not sure I want to mess with it. Let it be, and see how things develop over the coming days and weeks. :)

The comforting news is that while it can look ugly and disconcerting, it does not appear to be a critical issue. :)

Ok, I will keep you updated, hopefully he is back to normal soon. I hate having to keep him alone

Nice! Considered the enlarged right nostril I really think something may have been stuck in there, but maybe is now expelled or absorbed. :)
