Is the entire tail looking gray or just the damaged end? If it isn't looking any better, a vet visit
would be a good idea. You don't want infection traveling up the tail to make him ill.
Let us know how he is doing.

the whole tail is a grey / white

Hello,

If his entire tail is grayish, it sounds like it is going to shed. Just keep an eye on the darker
area which looks different at the tip, for any changes.

The end of the tail where it was black fell off where it ended, ive been soaking it in betadine, and putting none pain relief nesporin on it, i also noticed that she jerks her tail/body when touching her tail, shes still pooping, eating, and standing up while basking so i think shes doing better

Hello,

The tail appears to be in pre shed. Has the darkness at the tip changed any at all?
It looks suspicious on the end. Are you able to get him to a vet to have that checked out?
I would hate for any infection to affect the entire tail & then his health.
Is he eating normally?
