Abstract: A complete determination of when the elements of a fundamental group of a (countable) graph of profinite groups are conjugacy distinguished is given. By embedding an arbitrary fundamental group $ G$ into one with profinite vertex groups and making use of the above result, questions on conjugacy separability of $ G$ can be reduced to the solution of equations in the vertex groups of $ G$.
