For future reference:
Our girl is usually very good, but every once in a while she has trouble with her pads. After a lot of reading we bought a product from TRex called "BioMist"... We like it better than some of the shedding products out there because, while it contains skin conditioners to ease shedding, it also has a lot of other ingredients like electrolytes, which is advertised to help the overall health of the animal and you can use it as often as you want. (It was recommended to be used for first mistings after shipping too.) I like it because I was familiar with all the ingredients! Anyways, without sounding like a commercial, we keep a bottle of this on hand and it is such a light misting spray, you can spray to soak the stuck shed directly and the geckos don't seem bothered at all.
In fact, and I have no idea how she did this exactly, one of our girls shed off a crest and then got the skin stuck back on her eye... no amount of licking could she get it off. We had to spray her directly in the face for several days, but it worked, much to everyone's relief and she didn't really mind either... which is not her personality.
Glad to hear yours is doing better, just an FYI should the little one be a problem shedder... it happens to everyone at some point.
