Question Shedding Question

I have a 3 year old ghost female that has shed twice in two weeks. What makes them shed that fast? Injuries, sickness, etc?

That is a little different but not totally abnormal. Maybe she had a growth spurt or something. Did she completely shed last time? There may have been some still stuck on. Did you change her food size? Corns aren't completely grown at 3.

There wasn't any left on. When one of my snakes shed I get the shed and inspect it if is full for any problems as well as the snake. If it is in pieces I inspect the snake for any leftovers. I was just wondering if there might be something going on with my husbandry or just that the snake was doing something I wasn't aware of. I recently purchased her and I think she was fed live mice with no one watching and she is shedding injuries. She is also one of the ones I took to the vet for the clicking noise I posted in another thread.
Thanks for advice/help.
