Sunburned Nose
Dear Hobo - I am a beardie and my nose hurts when I am outside in the sun too long.  What should I do?  Ask your human to get some hypoalergenic sun block (maybe a SPF 30) and put it on your nose (especially the pink area) before you go out in the sun.  Lots of beardies do it and I have found it works.  If it is already sunburned, you need to stay inside until it heals.  By the way - Humans should remember not to leave your pets in hot places too long - never in the car in the summer!  And make sure clean cool water is always available.
