nose shed stuck

Postby adhdreptilenerd » Mon Jan 11, 2021 8:50 pm

I have an 11 month old female bearded dragon. She is happy and healthy otherwise and just as spunky as normal. She’s shedding some patches of her face and her left nostril was starting to shed and the outside of the nostril had popped off but was still connected to the rest. I went to look at it and make sure everything was good and just gently touched the shed. She got annoyed obviously but when she scratched at her face to get me away, she scratched off the outside part of her nostril shed, leaving the inside part still connected. I’m worried it’s going to get stuck there and I don’t want to prod at it for fear of hurting or nose and really it’s impossible to reach. I’m thinking of waiting to see if she can shed it herself but I’m super paranoid about everything so was just wanting to see if anyone had any advice. I was looking around to see if anyone had the same situation but it seemed like most people just had questions about normal shed noses but never a piece stuck in the nose that wasn’t reachable. I added pictures but I don’t know if they’re any use. Any advice would be appreciated!
I added a pic with the stuck shed circled and one without for ease of reading. [Click image to enlarge]
