blue tongue skink's incomplete shed

I have a baby blue tongue skink (about 2-3 months old.)
It has just shed, but the right front claw hasn't shed properly, giving the strange appearance of 4 little toes growing out of the end of the middle toe on one foot!! Of course it can't be 'growing', it must just be stuck - but it is stuck quite fast, I can't gently pull it off. Have tried holding the foot in water, but it hasn't softened it enough to come off. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
PS (As I live in Australia, I keep her outside.)
