Skin Lesions

Home > Frogs > Diseases

The outcome for frogs with skin lesions is generally not good. Most surviviing frogs are scarred and some frogs are even blind in one or both eyes. Light to moderate scarring should have no real effect on the everyday activities of the frog, but a loss of an eye certainly could be. Over time the frogs will learn to adapt to their partial loss of eyesight.

Relatively little is known about the causes of skin lesions in comparison to other diseases present in frogs. It is believed that prolonged exposure to cold temperatures and subpar living conditions are major contributors to skin lesions in frogs. These skin lesions are usually bleeding and occur primarily on the head and back of the frog. As with all infectious diseases the frog should be quarantined and treated through advice of a veternarian.
