View Full Version : Illness/Sickness: Wart like bump on my axo please help diagnose

9th February 2011, 20:22
My axolotl has recently grown 4 little wart like bumps under his belly. They are not fluffy, they look like a smooth bubble with a bit of a dark discoloration dot inside much like a human wart. I have been giving him daily salt baths for the past 3 days but I dont see much improvement. I added a few images, only the largest "wart" is visible in the pics but there is one small one under his mouth, one small one at the joint where his back leg begins and 1 large one on his belly.

If anyone can help diagnose what this is and give advice to treat I would be very appreciative. i will try to post better pics soon.

Hmmm... pictures are kind of fuzzy. Couldn't be ingested rocks could it?

No the rocks in the tank are way bigger then his head purposely so he cant swallow them. The bumps look exactly like a wart on the surface of his skin with a very slight darken tint to them. I will try to post better pics this evening.
