Really Bad Tail Rot?

Hello! I just recently discovered my bearded dragon may have tail rot. When i got her (from a friend who couldn’t take care of her anymore) she already had the bend in her tail but everything looked normal. I can’t tell if it might be stuck shed or bad tail rot. This is very urgent to me because she seems to have no feeling at the end of the tail (not sure). Any help is very appreciated, I started a betadine soak just in case

Hi there, can you post pics of the tail just like that while it's dry ? Being wet always distorts the true color. From what I see it just looks like shed though, but dry pics will be very helpful. A small kink is no problem at all, many beardies have them. BTW, tails feeling stiff is also normal, beardies can curl them a bit when they like but can keep them stiffened as well.

Thank you for getting back so quickly! I’ll take some photos in the morning as it’s 8:50pm for me and don’t want to disturb my beardie, once again I really appreciate your speed

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
