Injured tail???

Hi everyone. Iíve had my corn snake Peaches for about a year, and yesterday I noticed her tail looked like this. Iím not really sure whatís happened but I have a feeling some dead skin has gotten caught and caused any circulation of blood to get to the end of her tail. This has only been here for a few days if that, as she was fine last week. Thereís no way she would have injured herself in her viv, so Iím unsure if it could be anything else?

Has anyone got any advise? Iíve soaked her tail in some warm water but I donít want to stress her out too much. Sheís going into shed soon, so would that help remove the skin or make it worse? I have been spraying her viv with water to keep humidity up and have never had an issue before.

Do I need to take her to my vat? He specialises in reptiles so I know I can go to him. Iím just worried about her, and Iím worried it hurts her? She seems fine in herself and is eating and drinking fine and has been fairly active as well.

See pics below.
