    And his injury seems to be related to his scales like it doesn't seems like there's any open wound ? And his scales around the injury are whitening ? I don't know if it is useless information but heh

    No idea why the scales would be whitening...

    You said there was blood...so there has to be an open wound, inviting infection. You've already waited quite a while, not without risk to your snake.

    So listen, you can see his injuries better in person: IF it's NOT deep or bleeding a significant amount (a tiny amount of blood would have been normal from his
    shedding & pulling of the skin in the process & thus opening the wound up a little) personally I'd apply* some antiseptic as I previously suggested, & keep him
    clean (on paper towels) and skip the vet visit...UNLESS it seems to be infected. And if you aren't sure, a vet visit would be best. *Don't remove any stuck skin,
    apply antiseptic over/into/onto the injured areas as best you can. Betadine dabbed on will probably penetrate best just to clean it up (& since it's watery, might
    even help the old shed skin come loose)...then dry & apply a little ointment. Repeat once a day or so (unless you take him to vet & have other instructions).
    Again, I can only tell so much from online. Use your best judgement...we don't go to the doctor for a skinned knee, right? So if it's the equivalent, you can treat
    much the same. But since it's been a couple weeks & you haven't applied any antiseptic, I am concerned it might be infected. And I don't know how good of a
    "nurse" you are... so it's hard for me to advise.

    Even if the injury itself did not bleed originally, as soon as you saw blood (after the shed, if I read the thread right), there was an infection risk from a now-open wound at that time.

    Since you can't find a Herb Vet, try contacting any local zoo and or a snake breeder. They should know of a Herb Vet.

    The only one near me it six hours away.
