How do you get rid of scale rot on a ball python?

Answer

If the habitat that the ball python is kept is staying too wet or the humidity is too high, there is a chance that the snake will develop scale rot. To treat scale rot, make sure the temperature and humidity levels are correct. Then clean the tank thoroughly and switch to a paper towel bedding. Triple-anitbiotic cream can be applied to the affected areas.
