Edited to add: Is that a metal pie pan in your enclosure. If so, remove it ASAP. It can be leaching toxins into your water. Glass is a much better choice.

Yikes, no ick medicine please.

Yes I saw your pie pan. It appears to be metal so you need to remove it from your tank. Metals can leach into the water and make your turtles sick. As for your basking rock, it needs to have smooth surfaces for a softie.

She needs to be seen by a vet. If you have been giving her betadine washes and it has not cleared up, she is going to need antibiotics.
