So the snake is doing much better and has had significant progress in the last updates so here are some updates.

5/15 I noticed the eyes started getting cloudy representing a shed.

I've been giving her water/betadine baths every night followed with triple strength antibiotic ointment without painkiller on the blisters. Also been cleaning the cage every night with chrlorhexidine solution.

5/19 Came home from work to check on her and she shed in one piece. Her skin is BEAUTIFUL now. Also she seems to have a lot more energy and the big blister on her neck is now just a scab.

5/20 Still giving her betadine baths and ointment with cage cleaning until next shed (cant be too safe, right?) I offered a thawed mouse today and she ate it up! I'll offer her another shortly as I'm certain shes hungry for more.

Now I haven't changed anything in terms of ventilation or humidity/temp, although I still do plan on changing the ventilation and find a different enclosure also I will be using the substrate you recommended. I'm going to wait until her next shed/ and when the blister is 100% healed. Tomorrow I shall post up some photos of her progress. At this point in time I have a good feeling that she was refusing food on the fact she was shedding.
