    Default Help! Red Eye Tree Frog Infection?

    We are red eye tree frog, he is about 5 years old. A feed days ago we discovered a bad case of wood mites in his terrarium. We took everything out, scalded the plants and tank and changed to a non wood based substrate.

    The problem that has arisen is that there is something wrong with his eyes. I cannot find anything similar online and hope someone here can help. I am afraid the wood mites may have caused this.

    When he is asleep his normal eye covering appears to be issuing or injured on both eyes, there are brownish crusty things around his eyes and he has a hard time opening them. If I drop warm water on him it seems to loosen enough for him to open his eyes, but it returns to the same state the next day while he is resting.

    We are worried sick about him and do not have an exotic vet nearby, I am attaching a photo, hopefully one of you can offer advise.

    It has been several days, his eyes appear the same. His normal mesh like covering during the day seems to be not present. He is eating and behaving normally as far as we can tell. He lives alone and we have had him for 5 years. Can anyone help me know what to do for him?Name:  535F6289-018C-4BF3-8F6B-CC8919FC0E79.png

    I know you said you don't live local to an exotic vet but I really think in this case you're going to have to find one because it could get worse.

    I don't know but it doesn't look good. His eye looks really sore and painful and I don't know any home remedies that could help.

    I know, Poor baby. I can’t find a single thing online that looks anything like this. I am going to try and find a vet to see him, we are snowed in today, probably tomorrow also. Hopefully I can take him Friday. I just don’t know what to do to help him
