Try putting some plain aloe on the skin to help moisturize it and hopefully it will loosen and come apart before any damage is done.

We have an aloe vera plant, can we break a spine off and rub it on the tail?

Both the gel and the plant will work. Can you post pics of the tail though ?

It's good that it has improved, keep that up. I see where it's crimping the tail a bit, fortunately it's way near the end so even if it doesn't break free it shouldn't cause a long term issue.
