General Care Discussion :: Is this shell rot?

Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

I notice this on my turtle’s shell after he is dried, is this water stain or shell rot? How to tell the difference ? If this is shell rot, how severe is it?

It just looks like there has been some shedding in that area.
