bad shed?

Hey, so my cham seems to have had a bad shed after I got him in the mail about a month and a half ago.

My question is: is this a problem? It's to the point where I don't think there's any more dead skin coming off. It sounds like this could have been caused by low humidity, which is possible, I wasn't misting as often when I first got him.

Seems like this could block uvb.
