Respiratory infection

My Burmese Brown Mountain Tortoise has had puffy eyes since the day I got them, the substrate was dusty (now changed) and I believe it was too cold for him for the first week. It's now almost a month and a half in, he hasn't been taking greens, he will drink water. Last night for about 2 hours I put him in a ten gallon tank with a uvb bulb that made the area about 80-90 and a fogger. His eyes have been opening up more frequently although I still haven't seen him take greens, the last time he ate something other then a pinky mouse was friday the 19th, he took a few bites off a hibiscus flower. I am looking for some home solutions, but will take him to the vet if things get worse.

Have you tried getting the humidity and temps up? If memory serves they like high humidity and temps in the mid 80's. Not a tortoise keeper so hopefully one with more experience can chime in. I would recommend a vet visit to see if it is a respiratory infection
