Please help concerned and confused

I bought my beardie, Pete, a [Click image to enlarge]

4x2x2 because I wanted to try a bioactive enclosure, I was gonna buy the one on the biodudes website, but they were out of stock and I wanted to get my buddy all squared away, I did heaps of research before, but I’m still very inexperienced. He’s three weeks in and I noticed last night he’s got swollen feet and spot on his stomach I don’t think used to be there, and he’s not liking me getting near his feet, but he’ll take back pets. I’m gonna post pictures too but I’d really appreciate the community’s help to know if I have a real issue on my hands. (I’ve taken him out of his bioactive because I’m scared for him)[Click image to enlarge]

Hello,

It appears that he is getting ready to shed in those areas. Hopefully it isn't anything else going
on, but at the moment it just looks like shedding coming on.
He looks alert, overall right now.
What type of UVB lighting are you using?

I really don’t believe it is him shedding, I’ve gone through plenty of sheds with him and have never seen anything like this. He is very alert with has me have high hopes, but will be taking him to the vet if this persists, grows, or unless he sheds and looks healthy I guess. And I’m using zoo med 10.0 uvb bulbs (t5 ho), it’s only a 12 inch one but I was working on getting a larger one and I just replaced the bulb before this showed up
