    ALL OF THAT needs to be wiped down, you need to get a qtip with warm water, and you rub that stuff INTO the shell, Rub it straight back into the shell, he really shouldn't be out of that shell yet. but since you already have him out, CLEAN HIM GOOD. The ONLY thing you should see right now, is his cord. everything else needs to be pushed off his body.

    NO NO you don't have to put him in the shell now that he's already out.. He needed to kick the shell off, but you have done that for him.. Keep the shell off.

    the shell was for him to kick it off and gain muscle control, right now don't put him back in it, because it will INCREASE his risk of getting an infection..

    Ok. Sorry. I didn't get your message about not putting him in until after I sent the other one. I'm wiping him off. Should I throw the shell away when I get all that goo in there?

    He's still going to be attached to the shell with his cord, Once you get that gooy stuff off and there's just a cord, then put him back leaving the shell behind him like his got a bag of luggage. What we then need to do is Lower that humidity, keep the temp up and let the cord dry up, once it dries up and he dries up and gets more movement, then you can cut the cord or have him move about and adventually break it off.. The cord has to shrink up right now.. It's to thick to do anything unless we tie him off but I would rather him get cleaned and have it shrink up

    Please don't try to break the shell off of him, Remember his still attached to it by the cord, that cord has to dry up.. and basically colapse...
