Greetings herpers,

i recently had my MBK get lost in my car, at the time of loosing him he was showing early signs of blue phase maybe 3 days out from being fully in blue phase. i didnt find him until 2.5 weeks later, so happy i found him, but upon finding him i discovered a section of damaged scales roughly an inch long and half inch wide. (ill post pics later when my phone charges if possible.) Whats strange is i know he was in hiding for about the amount of time it would take him to get thru blue phase and shed and ive had him back for maybe 4 days and hes already going into blue phase again. could he be shedding from the damage? he wouldnt have eaten the entire time he was in my car and if im correct he shed roughly a week ago. any ideas on what this could be i still need to get him into the vet for a check up since finding him im waiting on my check was just looking for a little insight b4 then. he has ate and is drinking quite often
