Kindly advise whether the Aldabra in the attached pictures suffers from Shell Rot or some other issue and recommended treatment for the same. Thank you. 20201231_141419.jpg 20201231_141419.jpg 20201231_141431.jpg 20201231_141406.jpg 20201231_141412.jpg

Shell rot typically occurs on the plastron (underside) of the tortoise.

This isn’t shell rot. It looks like abrasion or possibly burning from a lamp that’s too close to me

Thank you very much for your kind response. The tortoise hasn't been kept under a lamp and it is out in the natural sunlight all day. If it is abrasion, is there any medication to heal it?
