Is this tailrot?

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

I notice it last week, dont know what caused it as my dragons are already separated and this cheecha is the aggressive one.
I already went ahead and placed some Betadine on it hence the reddish color. It hasn't spread though. I'm scared it will spread and I dont know what caused it really. She is 10.5 inches long, and around 5 months old. Its also really very small, just maybe .5cm

Hello,

That does not look like tail rot yet, no. Was it from a bite from his cagemate?
Continue using diluted betadine on it daily, along with neosporin or polysporin ointment on it one or two times per day. That should hopefully keep any infection down.

I don't think it was from a bite since Chong doesn't bite, its actually cheecha (this one) who bites that is why I separated them.

Ok, how does it go again as what I have done is just dip cheechas tail on the betadine and left the betadine there.

1.) So it's dilute betadine on water and dip tale (do we need to rinse tail after?)
2.) Apply neosporin after.

Just got the Neosporin eye drop today. Do we need to keep it refrigerated?
