Dont go smearing anything on the snake! I would say that your not feeding the snake a large enough feed item often enough and as such the snake isnt growing thus not having the need to slough!

she was on fuzzy mice once a week and shes roughly just over 60cms ive just bought a 10pack of pinky rats there bigger than the fuzzy mice i had her on
If shes 60 cm I would go fuzzy rats or weiner mice.Should I tell him about the bats. No need i thought. Poor ******* will see them soon enough! Obsesed By Geks Wan't Mice I got mice.
bredli feeding before on fuzzy mice , at 6 months old it could be eating much bigger items ... as Beeman suggested this is most likely why it's not shedding.
And who ever told you to smear vitamin e cream on it is an idiot , do not listen to their advice in the future.2 Week Herper .

You'll be surprised what they can fit in their gob, let us know how it goesWish list : Ahh the wish list
Just out of curiosity, what are her temps?
A 60 cm bredli can eat an adult mouse with no problems, so increasing the food size will aid growth. But don't worry about it not shedding, it will shed when it's ready.
NEVER smear anything except water on the skin of your snake to 'assist' shedding. Shedding is initiated by internal mechanisms, putting any sort of slimy crap on the outside will only cause problems where one didn't exist in the first place.
