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

Yes, she has two heat lamps that are full spectrum and a 36-in T5 UVB from 10.0 reptisun

Three-quarters of the ubb she gets right now however is Basking outside in the sun

Ok- uvb is critical w/ health and that includes skin/ scale

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.

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!
