It sounds like you are doing well with the exception of the sand substrate as it can cause skin issues as well as Corneal Abrasions and Impactions. You can se some of the issues with sand here:
The Red light can also cause thermal burns. I would rather see a while household bulb to be used for hear and basking rather than the Infra red lights.
I suggest cleaning the areas with some Betadine (provodine Iodine) and then applying Silvadene cream. You can purchase it on line as Themazene cream: http://www.mountainside-medical.com/products/Silver-Sulfadiazine-Cream.html on the spots on the back. I do not think this is UVB issues, but something else going on
As far as the eye you can use Saline solution 4 times a day and Beautiful Dragons has a medication you can get for the eyes: http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Terramycin.html.
