My Beardie Swallowed A Tiny Amount of Betadine Solution

I just got my juvenile Bearded Dragon a few days ago and he had some tail rot. I consulted a vet and they told me to go with the Betadine solution. I did about ten drops of 10% Betadine and poured about 16 ounces of water into a small container to soak his tail in. This was the second time I've done it ever, and the second time today. They first time my beardie was very calm and did not move and inch and the soak was simple. This time around they were still for a moment and then immediately jumped off my hand and landed directly into the solution. I pulled them out in less than a second and it seems that they got a small gulp of the solution. I quickly wiped off any residue on their head to prevent any more from seeping into their eyes, nose, ears, or mouth and finished the soak with success. I made sure to give a good rinse with some Repti-safe treated water to get rid of anymore Betadine solution on their body and placed them back on their basking rock in their enclosure. I have seen a couple other forums with similar situations, but was wondering if anyone has had a similar experience or any input on the situation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
