Chico had shed his entire body it's been around a 3 week process. This shed will not come off. I have been soaking him daily in shed aid, using olive oil, using a soft baby toothbrush and very gently brush with the direction of the scales. Humidity is around 35-40% during the day and around 40-45% during night. I cannot get it off!!!! Please help
Basking light-150watt zoo med or reptisun non coil
Uvb zoomed 10.0 t8 HO tube 24" 10inch basking spot 2 of them
Using 150 flukers CHE at night
Temp stays around 98-105°F during day night is usually 78-80°F
Diet consist of babyfood and veg slurry of the following: collard, turnip, mustard greens, carrots, squash, green beans, eggplant, prickly pear, blueberry, apple, bell pepper, raspberries, strawberries (all fruit are sparingly due to gout)
Insects are mainly mealworms (they are the lowest in purines)
He generally will lick around 3cc of babyfood/veg slurry off his nose daily. Still syringe giving water around 4cc per day throughout the day
He is still on allopurinol and black cherry tart juice as well for his gout
*Multiple pics attached*

That's no problem, dragons, including mine, shed like that quite often. My dragons that I've had for many years get uneven sheds all the time. It's totally natural, something that the internet has caused people to think is a problem is perfectly normal.

So it doesn't look like it's cutting off his circulation? Thank you so much I've been freaking out the inside of his mouth appears to be yellow is that an issue? I'm seriously thinking about taking him to the vet again but honestly I take him to the vet and spend a lot of money to hear that he's fine so what do I do? I've spend a few grand just to hear that he is fine cuz I take him sometimes 2-3 times per week cuz he was sickly when I got him

Yellow mouth is also normal in some beardies. Even a lot of wild beardies have yellow mouths.
Thank you so much....what if it's new? It hasn't always been yellow! I look inside his mouth often because I have to syringe feed him although could the baby food stain his mouth he had squash today?
