Bearded dragon pale back

Hi I’ve had my bearded dragon for 1 month he is approx 4 months old. A couple days ago I noticed this paleness on his back. He shedded around 1-2 weeks ago but I never saw his back shed so it could be possible that he could just be shedding in parts but I just wanna be extra safe I’m about to attempt to give him a bath. So if anyone knows what this is please tell me.
Thanks

Yes that is shed ---- I recommend getting him off the substrate you have him on --- for a 4 month old they lick and will eat it -- you dont want him getting impacted--- some textured NON adhesive shelf liner from Walmart or you local home improvement store is good - cut to the size of the tank insects cannot get underneath - can you go over your UVB your using please - this helps w/ shedding and all over health issues -- coils are NO good and inadequate --- surface basking temps should be 105-110 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer - stick ons are inaccurate
