Hi, I have Caspian pond turtle , for last few days we are seeing white spots on his neck,hands and legs and around eyes.
we started taking him to natural light for sometime in a day and goes into water only for 30 min twice a day.
Normal temperature where he is goes to 40*C during day and around 20*C in night


Also started putting anti fungal cream on his skin and betadine on his shell twice a day. he is not eating for last 2 days
what can we do to save him

Attaching his photos

How many days are between those pictures? What cream are you using? How are you trying to feed him?

1 day only.. second photo is without starting anti fungal cream. we have used Monistat on skin and betadine on shell. Sin is little better now but more concerning is his eyes which seems is discharging something. He is not eating anything for last 2 days.pls help

If the cream is oily, it could be masking the fungus. I'd be surprised if Betadine alone would do much against fungus. I'd stop the treatment and concentrate on getting him back to eating. If he's out of water for long periods of time, you might be seeing mineral deposits around the eyes.

Is he being dry docked or in the regular tank? I would primarily keep things stress-free and cut down on any excessive treatment or handling.
