She's also dehydrated, so any tips on how to get beardies to drink water would be grateful because I've tried everything.

Try spraying her head w/ water bottle - see if she will lick -- keep spraying till she either moves away or stops licking - bathing-- and rinse the greens before serving - this will give her hydration also feed horn worms they are a good hydrating worm -- offer her water every couple of days - but if shes eating the salads shes gonna get hydration from them w/ them being rinsed -- I didnt see anymore red dots

I reached out and got this response
Probably some type of harmless blemish. If you're really worried have a vet check it out. Some of my dragons have had random red spots that seem like " freckles" for lack of a better word, areas of red pigment.
BTW, how was it determined that the dragon is dehydrated ? It appears to be in good condition.

Hello,

I agree, it kind of looks like a freckle, or pigmentation mark which they often get. I don't think it is food,
like from a raspberry or anything?
Does it seem to bother her at all?

Hello,

That is odd! I hope that it is nothing serious. Perhaps they may be able to try & carefully remove it if it's
some type of growth starting. Let us know how things go.

Update: took her to the vet bc of the spots, and her not really eating to get an xray and blood work done. blood work was fine, xray seemed to be fine. Her glucose level cam back as 660. Which is more than double the highest level of glucose a beardie should have. My vet is consulting with a specialist to see if the glucose level is because of a tumor, diabetes, or hopefully the lab messed up her tests...

Shes thinking the spots are scale rot maybe resulting from the high glucose (tumor) if she does have one. Im supposed to hear back today.

Hello,

I hope that she doesn't have a tumor. What did she eat that could have eaten that might have caused
her glucose to spike or be higher than it should be?
If you have the blood test results you can try to post them on here for me. They did a scraping or a
biopsy of the spot near her ear?

Let us know how she is doing.
