Possible Tail Rot?

Hello all,

I just got a new bearded dragon on Saturday (Khonshu) after my last little guy (Drax) passed away. Upon bringing him home I noticed that he may have a bit of tail rot on the tip of his tail. I wanted some other opinions on this, please see attached pictures.

I have started home care (Betadine soaks and Neosporin, without pain relief, two times a day). I have also already set up a vet appointment for Monday... I decided to wait a week for the appointment in order to give home care a chance since the vet will most likely just cut off the tip of his tail. Do you guys think this is a good idea? Does home care have a shot at salvaging the tail, or should I just go earlier? Also, is cutting off the tip a "low-risk" procedure that actually has success eliminating the progression of this? Admittedly I am not familiar with tail rot as none of my dragons have ever had it. I should also mention that Khonshu is incredibly small and young (likely between 1 and 2 months), so I'm not sure if this should impact my decisions either.

Look forward to some feedback.
