My bearded dragons humidity is just above 40%, being 41%. On the cool side it's 48%. Will he be alright? During the night, it significantly increases to around 50%. Usually it isn't so high, but it's been raining a lot.

I'm using a dehumidifier, which doesn't seem to be helping. I put a sock with rice; no help. I even opened a window and have a fan on. I'm not sure what to do.

It's perfectly fine.
It would likely take time at a lot higher humidity to cause a problem if in fact it ever did.
I lived in Central Florida for a little over a year and never could keep humidity lower than the upper 80's to lower 90's and Puff never had an issue the whole time.

Are you getting reading from a digital probe hygrometer? The 40% is good please shut the dehumidifier off if that is the normal reading- you don't want under 20% or over 70%

Yes, it is from a digital probe hydrometer. Is about 50 okay during the night? As it raises to that when the lights go off.

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
