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

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
