Still having shedding issues, just leave it or is there something else to do?

Follow-up from the last questions about a month ago, she still has a lot of built-up shed under the area of her beard that got injured some months back. I've been soaking and brushing her shed area here, little bits and pieces of come off but the majority of it is still there

Boy that looks not good -- I am going to have AHBD take a look and see what she recommends -

Yes I have used honey, she gets toothbrush rubs with a bit of vegetable oil and a Saline Solution flush after.

What I don't understand is that, this is the exact area that was all swollen some months back. I have to assume that it's related because she doesn't have this issue anywhere else so I'm trying to figure out how that could cause this

Yeah, something started it but it might be best now to quit the scrubbing but just apply raw honey and no oil. Unpasteurized honey is an antimicrobial but veg. oil is not.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
