Possible stuck shed?

Hi guys - noticed this on my beardie’s tail yesterday and was wondering if it is anything to be concerned about? There seems to be a patch which is slimmer than the surrounding area and also greyish in colour, which made me think it might be a patch of stuck shed. I know this can be a problem in terms of circulation especially in the tail so I thought I’d ask for opinions on how much I should worry/what I should do. I gave him a bath yesterday and gently rubbed that patch but it didn’t seem to do anything.

It's not looking serious but you can be proactive by soaking it in a 1 part betadine 10 part water mixture for 10 minutes a day. If your dragon sits with you calmly you can use a cup or jar to put the solution in and just hang the tail in.

Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
