Once you see his eyes turn grayish/blue spray him a few times a day to increase his humidity... really soak him!
Well I've got him in the bath solution again tonight.

His belly looks, and pardon my language, ****ed up. The last 1/4 is just this thick piece of skin that is peeling off but it looks very raw below it as if the new skin is having trouble generating.

I am just going to keep up with these baths and if he is still bad in Monday he is going to the vet.
