First pic is fungus, 2nd pic might be the same, though something else might be going on.

She's a healthy turtle, she eats a lot and basks a lot. Her shell was once green, I thought it was her shedding.

'nothing can beat silver sulfadiazine cream though.'
So this is the best for the job?

And if yes, how do I apply. Should I coat the fungus part with the cream?

Okay I found some info from the search:

'There's nothing that works faster than silver sulfadiazine, if it works on this type of strain. Applying is easy... dry dock, apply a very small amount, wipe up after dry dock, return to tank.'

What exactly is dry docking?

Dry docking, just keeping your turtle in a dry, safe place. If I have to, I do it at night and they are more relaxed since they sleep.

So when I requested the silver sulfadiazine thing and they said ' you need a prescription' then they asked what I was using it for. I told them about the turtles and they giggled their heads off. Then as i was browsing through, I saw anti fungal cream. So I bought it. I hope it works.
