Heres some pics... you can see shes rolling back over onto her side.. its kinda hard to see her skin peeling off... because of the lighting... but yeah.. :( she cant really walk.. shes trying as i type.. and she keeps falling on her face.. I can try to get some video.. to see if that'd be clear-er than a pic..

put her in the fridge ASAP! this will calm her right down! and put the water level quite low she will loose her appetite when shes in the fridge and wont eat no food! but its nothing to worry about at all as they can last a few weeks wothout food.

Calm her down? Shes not really freaking out. But alright I'll get her in the fridge and hope for the best >< she keeps turning more and more on her side each time and its really worrying me :(

Thats why its best to put her in the fridge for about 1 week because asshe keeps turning on her side shes trying toget her balanceand it will be annoying her as she cant get her balance put the water level down just 1 inch above her top thin, i hope she really gets better when shes in the fridge she wont eat nothing probally not even live food, keep updating on how shes getting on please

Alright. Thank you for replying. I'll keep you guys updated. daily, or hourly. depending on if shes getting worse within the hours ><

She'll start to look worse before she looks better. Try not to freak out too much.

Tea baths might be a good idea to soothe her skin. The tannins are also anti-fungal and anti-bacterial which would help to stop any complications. But to be honest she looks stressed but not too bad.

try using a water dechlorinator with aloe vera, this will have natural anti-biotic effect as well as help keep the skin healthy
