HELP! Possible tail rot.

I just bought my first bearded dragon almost a week ago. She was shedding when I first got her. I’ve noticed her tail looking off. I believe it may have been injured or maybe another dragon bit her(I’m not sure of her past). Im worried she may have tail rot.

She’s very attentive, eating well, her temperatures are perfect, and she’s pooping regularly. I’ve been giving her baths and using a soft tooth brush to try and help her shed her tail.

Can someone please provide some advice? I’m obviously very new and I don’t want anything happening to my beardie.

To me it looks ok- no black no nips or pinches- her tail is going to shed when it's ready- let it do it's thing-

I see a small crimp at the end, but that doesn't necessarily indicate a problem. The shed looks normal so I'd let that complete and then keep an eye on the very end of the tail and look for changes there. If it stays the same, then it's not likely anything to worry about.

Hi this is exactly like when I bought my bearded dragon I was really worried about tail rot like you in your case it isn’t tail rot because it isn’t black and it is just shedding and I see a nip at the end and that can be normal as well my bearded dragon has one as well

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
