Hey, i just had the same probom with my 4 foot male, the best thing to do is take a clean trash can with a good lid and put about a foot of water in it, put the snake in it for about 30-45 mins each time, do this about 2 times a week till it finsh sheding, if there is still old skin on the eye cap (this can be a pain staking job) thake the snake by the head and get a small bow of water, put his head under water for about 4 secents, and then take it out for a few secents, do this about 5 times, then very gently, slightly rub your finger over the eye cap, this will usaly get the skin to come off, be very careful though, i have herd of people removing the cap before.
well good luck!
Philip
