Hi Sue,

Thank you for that. 


Just one more thing, i went to get my usual substrate but they had sold out, I had a look in Pets At Home (it was next door) and they had something called Tortoise Terrain, which it says is a "mixture of sterilised top soil, sand and limestone". Although it says it is suitable for tortoises, it is not what i would usually buy, so I wanted to make sure before i bought it.

Would you know if this is suitable for her?

Thank you for your help. I ordered some from the chemist as they didn't have any in stock, so I can start treating her tomorrow.
It's been on my mind all day and night and I feel so bad that she has got this as I'm so cautious about removing uneaten food, checking the humidity etc.
I'm off out to by new substrate as well as I want to remove the one she currently has.

Hopefully she will be on the mend soon.

Thanks again, this forum is such a great help :-)

Do you know what causes shell rot please?
