Chacoan Waxy Monkey Frog

I currently own a waxy named Marvin and he has not been eating in the last few days. At first I thought it was out of laziness (he usually waits until the crickets are right in front of him before he goes after them), but after seeing a bunch of them in front of him at one time and not once has he gone after one, I've been getting kinda worried. He's looking kinda skinny and it scares me. This might sound kind of stupid, but about 5 days ago I noticed a bunch of long, white, stringy waxy stuff falling off of him and thought either (a) that's just the wax that he secretes or (b) maybe that was him molting and that is why he hasn't felt like eating lately. The reason why I kinda don't think it's the wax he normally secretes is because so much of it was coming off and falling on to the ground and usually they just rub it all over themselves. Know what I mean? Seeing as how it's hard for me to find much information on this type of frog either on line, in books, or from asking people at pet stores, I figured this would be the next logical place to ask. Any ideas would be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks a lot.

P.S. I also have a question about humidity. I have read on some web sites that their cages should be sprayed once or twice a week. Others have said to never spray. Does anybody know which is right?
