Early tail rot?

I recently purchased my first bearded dragon a few days ago and I noticed that it had an injury on the tip of its tail which he had obtained at the shop I got him from (it appeared that the tip had been nicked off). In order to prevent infection, I have been very meticulous about keeping the hygiene standards extremely high but I have noticed that the very tip of the tail where the injury was appears somewhat shrunken but does not seem to be discoloured as I usually see in cases of tail rot though I may be wrong as he naturally has dark banding on the tail and may somewhat hide this. Besides this he seems to be very active and healthy and is feeding well and responding to his environment normally and does not appear lethargic. Could this be early tail rot? And if so what are my best options for treatment, I have commenced using a betadine soak.

Thank you for the quick replies and I'm relieved to see that everything seems to be ok. I'll keep an eye on it and continue the betadine soak and I'll get some unpasteurized honey just to be on the safe side.
