well if any animal is having shedding problems, its usually cause its not humid enough. before you worry about the environment problem, you should take the skin off of her, a little suck between the eyes is no problem, but on their feet and fingers can be a problem if left alone. the best way to do it is to get a container and put some water in it and get her wet and let her soak. some say to use one part hydrogen peroxide to 4 parts water to soak them in. with day geckos i dont use peroxide cuz one time i left a baby mad mad in for too long and he swelled up like five times his size and died. but if you soak her for a couple minutes and use some fine forceps to pull the skin off she should be fine. the most stressful thing to a day gecko is having layers of unshed skin stuck to their pads.
