Strange brown spot on my Bearded Dragons beard

Hello! I am just wondering if anyone can help me tell what this brown spot is on my bearded dragons beard. I think he is trying to shed his beard, as it does look a bit less shiny, and his head is also dull, and he has lost some shed from the tip of his nose. but I noticed recently there is a strange brown spot on his beard. I haven't tried to clean it off yet, since I just noticed it a few moments ago, but wanted to see what you all thought. I will attach a picture below.

Thank you for you time

Well I could be wrong but it sure looks like pre shed to me and just a darker spot kind of poking through the rest of the area that’s in shed. Most likely not something to worry about maybe wait until his beard is done shedding and I bet you won’t be able to see that spot anymore but I’m not 100% sure?

ohh okay, I haven't heard of pre shed before, so I will look more into that. Thanks so much!
Well I call it that might not be an actual term lol 😂. You can just start to see the skin slightly dull and then become cloudy until it’s almost white and it’s just a build up until it actually starts to shed off. Once you’ve seen it enough times you start to see the progression your dragon goes through before the skin actually sheds.

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
