He’s been extremely stressed recently, most likely due to me redoing my room. For about 2 weeks, though, his finger has slowly been swelling up more,which I think is due to a stuck shed. I don’t know what this is, so. I’d appreciate any help

if it is because of shedding problems try soaking him in warm water with diluted betadine, only if its because of shedding of course, has he shed the rest of his body recently? Also try not to stress him out as much as he is probably in pain. it could be a broken finger or an injurey i would suggest taking him to the vet, hope your beardie gets better soon:]

Yup Seems to be a shed issue. Their shed skin can act like a rubber band restricting blood flow, If your using distilled water that can dehydrate their skin try using spring water or regular water treated with ReptiSafe.I would raise my humidity a bit but I'd scope it out further to see if it was shed skin and not something worse. Warm soak maybe scrub with a tooth brush if not forceful or rough maybe offer rocks and other rough surfaces in his enclosure so he has something to rub on and against to help with future sheds.
