First Question

I have taken a photo of her wound today (see the first figure below). You can see there is a dark pink thing. Does anyone know what it is? Is it pus or a scab?

Second Question

This wound has already been there for almost a month. I had taken her to a vet for consultation since I discovered it. The vet offered me some cream and iodine to apply at home and asked me to take her back for antibiotic injection every three days for about two weeks. After all the things, the vet told me it is healing and no need to go back but I doubt it. I have a picture of the wound a month ago (see the second figure). Can any tell me if the wound is really healing?

It does look like a scab not not really healing. Was the vet a reptile/exotics vet? It does look worrisome, I would get a second opinion.
