I have posted a blog about moderate to advanced shell rot treatment. You can see a few pictures there. Also you will notice small white spots as well as something that looks like scaling on the scutes. It can be mushy and smelly if it progresses. Check out Google images as well to get more pictures of shell rot. It can be treated at home as long as it hasn't progressed too far. Also YouTube.com has videos for treatment of shell rot. I hope this helps some.
