I'm not sure about the scales healing completely, but I would say they probably will with time. I would also be sure to keep the snake on a dry substrate, just to prevent other illness's such as infections or scale rot from being too wet/damp. Just my advice, hopefully some others will write a few suggestions too. Good luck,

::I'm sure someone will contradict me, but quick sheds like that often mean some sort of scale damage.

:He did have a few scales that looked like they were rotting out before the first shed, and now these same scales are moderately healed.

:Does this mean that the damaged scales will heal totally or what?
