So my friend fairly recently bought a grey tree frog from Back Water Reptiles and she ended up giving her to me because I have 3 fire belly toads and another grey tree frog, all of them are in separate terrariums but I noticed that the tree frog she gave me has this slight open wound thingy- there’s no blood or discharge but I am still highly concerned because I want to do anything I can to help the poor baby so any help would be greatly appreciated. I have no idea what to do nor do I know how it got there. She’s still very active and is eating but I just want to know if there is anything more I can do.

I would like to make a suggestion based on something that once worked for me with a green treefrog that had a similar problem with a wound on its nose, as I recall. Using a moistened Q-tip, I dabbed a very small amount of Neosporin ointment once daily, very sparingly, to the wound, and it seemed to heal up quickly after just a few days. Be very careful to apply only a tiny amount, and only to the affected area, because amphibians have sensitive skin. It worked for me so I recommend trying it.
