is there a way ear abscess can be treated without a trip to the vet?
and by the way, what is it caused by? i hear it may be vitamin-A deficiency. is this right?

I agree with mariza. Please get him to a vet.

-also, my turtle does not go in the water so often - after having this bump. it usually stays in the water most of the time, but lately, it has been staying on a rock most of the time. why is this?

Salespeople at petstores usually don\'t know what they\'re talking about and will only try to sell you something that isn\'t going to work. Please save yourself some time (and your turtle some pain) by having him treated properly.
