 Shedding stuck

I actually posted in the lIzard forum but wanted some advice here as well. Mel has a shed stuck on her tail, back and front legs. I give her warms baths, she has rocks to rub on, changed her lighting, which was needed cuz the 1st day she pooped 3 times! Idk what else to do. I’ve read mineral oil can be rubbed on troubled spots and I did a lil on her tail, which helped. I’m apprehensive about putting more one her, cuz JFK how safe that is. So much info is wrong! This shed has been very slow, I know she’ll want to brumate soon....please help JFK what else to do. I have more comments in the general lIzard forum. I thank you and Mel B does to. :)

if you’re keeping her humidity high, and misting her regularly, there is little else you can do. soaking helps. mineral oil won’t harm her. put it on and massage it into her skin. it sounds like you’ll just have to patiently work on it. there’s something called, "reptile shed" that some people say helps. it looks like this: Link
