Take your turtle to a herp vet. This sounds like something that requires a vet\'s care, not suggestions from this board.

when you say <i>above</i> her mouth .. it makes me think of her ear. does her head look swollen on one side? it could be a problem with her ear. just a suggestion. i\'m just going with ideas from what we were told. good luck!
