Thank you I looked over the pictures. It does look like some retained shed in the area. You can try a warm soak and a soft toothbrush and see if you can loosen the shed on the scales.This occurs when the humidity is off. You may want to up the humidity a bit in the enclosure. Make sure you are adding calcium to the diet, so it can be metabolized by the UVB light. Generally when we see a shedding problem, it usually is because an a Vitamin A issue. You can always add a little codliver oil to some ground food to aid with that issue.
