Change you tank substrate to something that is rounded do not use coarse angular substrate. Also agree with fungal infection need to change 100% of your water and the do weekly 25% water changes with 75% monthly water change. Sunshine is always best so if you can go to Bunnings get a clam shell put two inches of water and cover half the shell with shade and put your turtle in there for a couple of hours every weekend or when ever you home during the day

Also, Make sure the objects in the thank aren’t too sharp or abrasive

It's a form of shell rot you can treat it with a fungal and antibiotics but also changing out the water with a full tank too plus if you dont get it outside to use a shell hardener to help too I had similar with my turtles and they came good

Thank you all for your advice, I'll give them a go and see how things go
