Damn , 3 months and not 1 answer.

Do not use Hydrogen peroxide. It will damage the skin...dry it out and possibly burn the snake.Use triple antibiotic cream and only paper towel or news paper substrate. If you must use a liquid , use a product from the drug store called Betadine. Mix it 50/50 with water and allow the snake to soak in that for a short period. If you suspect that the snake will drink, soak in water first to see if the snake drinks...then switch to betadine solution.

Do not allow the snake to soak daily...keep it drier than normal with only a small drinking water container. It will take weeks to heal and possibly more than 1 shed.

Good luck
