    Default protrusion in lower abdomen + scale loss

    My gecko is around a year old and has been completely healthy up until recently, and I'm still unsure of its gender just yet. I started to notice a bulge under its tail, which made me assume it was a male, until I noticed that its lower abdomen also protruded outward as well. He eats regularly and the temperature + humidity is fine, and the gecko has no problems with excreting either. I have him eating Pangea food as well as some dried crickets on the side. As for the scale loss, I removed a rock from the bottom of the cage, because he was often sitting there and thought that it could have caused scraping. I honestly have no idea what to do, and I'm getting really worried about the growth in his abdomen especially. Any help is appreciated greatly.

    Honestly, this requires vet care, it could be an infection/abscess of some sort that will require medical attention
