 Help new water dragon

I got two water dragons about 3 weeks ago. The one is doing great but the other has brown patches on it skin. These patches are by the back legs and back area. They are both eating earth worms and crickets. They wont eat mealworms or veggies. They are currently in a 55gallon until we get their other cage built. Humidity it perfect at 80 sometimes it does go down to 50 when I turn the fogger off so the cage can dry out. Temps are about 80 give or take a few degrees. I am very concerned with the one dragon. Any help would be greatly appreciated thank you!

I would upload a picture but I’m not sure how to do that on here. I took them both out of their tank to get some exercise and it seems lile these patches could possibly be skin. I was able to rub very gently and it began to peel away, I didn’t want to force it in fear of hurting the little guy. Could this possibly be shedding?

She was stuck in a bad shed. Soaking her for about 30 mins for a few days in warm water with massaging helped loosen the skin and now she is shedding on her own thankfully.

I use johnson’s baby oil in the water to help soften the shed. Just squirt some in and let them soak, you’ll be amazed at what comes off. Also use a baby toothbrush to loosen the skin.
