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.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
