One small spot...

...of what looks like cotton on Leroy's forehead, and I'm in a panic. Other then that little tiny spot I almost didn't notice, he's fine. Active and feisty as always.

BUT I did just loose my newest dragonscale this morning to an outbreak of fungus that started the other day and just took over before I could get anything stronger then aqua salt.

I want to nip anything in the butt in the beginning, but I also don't want to overreact and treat poor Leroy for something that is nothing.

Advice?

The fuzz in question. Just a small, itty bitty spot but making me nervous. Right above his eyeball there.
