Thank you for your reply.
I was very worried about the little guy so what i actually did was to put him in a little cup with some tepid water and a tiny drop of vegetable oil. He did not like being in the water but the cup was so little he had to stay in it. I left him in there for 15 minutes and then gently used a q-tip to remove the skin........the shed was on his neck and slightly down his sides and 2 toes had been stuck together.The skin came off very easily. I'm hoping the toes become slightly less scrunched looking now that the skin is off, the colour in his toes is still good. You're right, the poor little guy did not like this proceedure but didn't panic as i was afraid he would. He still has a bit of skin on his one side that i'm working on with a wet q-tip. Again, thank you for your response, i kinda jumped the gun on waiting for an answer because he'd been like this for about a week and i was thinking time might be running out.
