Unhappy Shedding Issues

My 10 year old Sinaloan is having some major shedding issues I've never seen before. She missed a few ventral scales on a shed but I assumed she managed to remove them herself a little while later (she didnt). She went right back into shed about 2 weeks later, which i'd never seen her do before.
This time she wasnt able to remove any of the shed on her own, even with increased humidity. I've tried soaking her a few times and was able to help ease off most of her shed except for the ventral scales again.
They're starting to wrinkle and split so I'm not really sure whats going on. The stuck shed isn't loosening over time either.
She has aspen shavings. Temps range from 75-90 ( they are a little lower right now bcause my apt has terrible heating). Humidity is around 45% on average.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Put in a humid hide for next shed cycle to help raise the humidity. Seems it's just needs some help. Even if you think it's good still add one.
