Stuck shed on lips (pics inside)

My Amber been trying to get this piece of shed off her lip she did the rest herself I'm wondering if I should leave it or not. She has tried for about 2 1/2 weeks rubbing her face on everything she sees but it ain't cutting it anymore. Only thing I could think of was a nice bath and see if it comes off or using a soft bristle toothbrush as others have mentioned.

Am I worrying for nothing? You would think a small bit like this would come off easier than it is.

She didn't like taking a pic otherwise I would of got a better one 😅

That's not uncommon at all or harmful in any way. Never pick at leftover shed, a warm 10 minute soak can loose it but isn't necessary because it will come off in time.

She doesn't have a single piece of shed left on her body except this tiny piece I ran a bath and she wanted out after 8 mins

It's O.K, it will come off. Many owners have had the same situation, myself included. There's nothing to worry about.

So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
