Have owend my bearded dragon for 1year 1/2 now, was giving him regular bath when I seen what looked like a sore under his tail. Was wondering if anyone has seen or know what this might be and if I have to take to the vet.

That looks like maybe a blood blister or something along those lines. How long has it been there? Has it appeared to expand? Does there appear to be any signs of an open wound or does it look like a bruise under the skin?

Along with those Q's do you have a heat rock that could have burned her ?

He still acts normal doesn't seem like it bothers him much, he still eats, plays and takes his baths. Hasn't changed much from the first time I took the picture

That looks like it needs some vet attention. Do you have an experienced vet to go to ? In the meantime you can apply a watered down betadine solution, let it dry , then either neosporin or raw honey + put gauze around it. It might be tricky when he poos though but you can figure out how to handle that.
