Shedding Problems

 
Most healthy lizards will never have a problem while shedding. The most common causes for shedding problems include inappropriate diets and a lack of bathing facilities.

The best way to assist your lizard in removing retained skin is by bathing it in warm water and gently drying it with a towel. If this does not work after a period of a few days take your lizard to a veterinarian who can properly remove the retained skin.

Caution: Never try to remove retained skin by pulling on it or otherwise using force as this can cause wounds on the surface of the lizard which can lead to serious infections and unnecessary pain for your lizard.
