It looks like shed to me to be honest. If you pulled it off yourself you might have pulled it before it was ready, leaving slightly raw skin underneath exposed.

Either that or your dragon is paradoxing lol.

I wouldn't be concerned it will go away if it was just skin that wasnt fully ready yet.

If the mom was a paradox it's a possibility that yours is paradoxing too then. How cool.

I soak them and peel it off slow with a tool, only when it gently falls off

Please don't pull any shed off ! I know you think you have a safe method but you can at the very LEAST, highly irritate the area. At worst you can really hurt your dragon, they do not need help unless it restricts the tail tip or their toes. Too many owners think beardies need so much help with a natural process that is best left alone. I'm not being mean or anything, just really want to emphasize this though.

The scales are intact and smooth/normal looking, just lost all coloration suddenly turned albino looking. A few days before she looked totally normal after shed.

Hello,

You are sure she isn't going to shed those areas again? That is what it appears to me, but
hopefully it isn't a skin or fungal issue.
You could put a little bit of aloe vera gel or coconut oil on the area to help out.

Do face sheds happen slowly start at mouth? It is spreading to her nose turned dark grey blue, could this be a shed starting it's not a previous shed. It's not food washed her face many times. Also mostly hand feed her. Can head sheds start like this I dunno never seen that.

It looks like the start of shed to me too, I only didn't mention that because you said she just finished shedding...

She did, like last week. She is young and molting fast like Gary.. she is 3 months old hatch April 21st 200gs Gary is about 5 months 420gs use to molt immediately after shedding but the head goes all at once. I dunno guess this type of shedding is normal¿
