The toothbrushes most people use are the very soft ones meant for babies, so you could try that with just very gentle brushing (not scrubbing) in a warm bath, if your beardie doesn't seem to mind too much. :0)
Never knew I could get so happy about poop, or so comfortable with bugs. :-D

Hey I also recommend a shed aid spray and spray everyday on the area and rub nicely with finger keep doing it and within a week or two or even less it should be gone

Hi there, a lingering shed is very common, especially as beardies get larger and with adults it's actually the norm. This can happen with babies as well. Beardies shed in stages and unless there is retained shed on the tail end or on the toes that restricts blood flow ,[ usually it has the appearance almost of a small rubber band that is almost embedded ] then there's no need to worry. But if your beardie enjoys a short warm soak then there's nothing wrong with giving it a little spa treatment, other than that it's nothing at all to worry about.
Can you post a couple pics of your guy ? Here's how : Then use the XIMG to upload them
