 RES possible shell rot or shedding, please help.

Hi there,
I have recently purchased 2 baby red eared sliders, they were not in very nice conditions when we bought them (small plastic box, 9 sliders trickle of dirty water no light heat etc) and so we thought to rescue them. After getting them home and giving them a few days to settle etc, i started noticing on one of them his shell has some weird black areas in between the shell sections. It also looks like some are peeling off. I’m pretty worried this is shell rot from other posts and i have put him in dry dock and am applying cream. How ever i have not seeing any improvement, its been 5 days, he seems happy enough eating well etc. Ive attached some pictures below, Please HELP.
