Reptile Kundi

I have a question about Kundi, my female reptile pythonidae

I took my ball python to the vet 2 weeks ago for brown discoloration on her belly. The doctor prescribed chlorpheniramine to soak her in until she shed, and he told me I could switch her from the dry habit with nothing in it but a towel to the one with dirt. She shredded the next day after the vet visit but her scales came off. After putting her in the dirt she had dirt clogged up on her belly so I put her in the chlorpheniramine and it looked like she was starting to bleed because her belly turned red so I took her out and now she's brown again and the tip of her his red looking. Should I take her back to the vet or continue to wash her off? And is it okay to feed her in that condition because she hasn't eaten in 3 weeks?

I think that you should go up the humidity the Kundi's room .You can wash Kundi with warm watter but you never remove its skin. The skin will fall off slowly.
It is normal not eating while the shedding.
You can give it vitamins.They can help Kundi with the shedding.
If Kundi is not better with those things,then,you should take Kundy the vet.If you look at it and it is worse,then,urgently to the vet because it might have an infection.

Kind regards,
