4 months, Shedding

I noticed the bulging eyes, puffy throat, scratching and an ATTITUDE but it's a result of shedding.
I bathed her yesterday and I will continue to do so 2-3 times a week. I will rotate between plain warm water and a bath with the reptile electrolyte soak. I am hoping this is going to be a smooth process.

I gave Rocky a bath- she pooped within 3 minutes so I cleaned the water and had her soak again. Rocky is so uncomfortable and it's showing in her behavior. Rocky didn't want me to pick her up. She got aggressive when it was time to put her back. Thank goodness she ate twice this morning because she I couldn't bribe her this afternoon with her favorite roaches.
My poor baby!

Please dont over bathe, it can cause other problems such as drying them out , fungus or bacteria under the scales ect. (From not getting fully dry) Shedding is natural for them and they do it well. My advice is let nature work. If you see patches that are lingering around after the shed is complete a good soak can get it off

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
