The end of the tail will eventually atrophy and fall off, as he stated. The only other thing I would do is apply antibiotic cream to the end of the tail periodically where the dead cells join the good cells. Any time there is an opening in the skin there's a possibility bacteria may enter and cause an infection. It doesn't usually happen, but I like to minimize the chance. Good luck, she will not miss the end of the tail at all. LOL

I don't know what is available in the UK. Here we have triple antibiotic cream made by Equate. The ingredients are Bacitracin, Neomycin Sulfate, and Polymyxin B Sulfate. Any quality antibiotic made to prevent infection due to cuts, scrapes and burns will suffice.

I bought a baby corn from a young breeder in his teens a few years ago just because the last baby he had did have stuck shed on itís tail. I got it home and got the shed off but the damage was done. The tail came off it healed up and that snake is good. The only thing is that the snake who we name Captain Nubbula doesnít like you to touch his tail. If you think about how they are made I would think that there is only a little bit of skin over bone there and that bone might have a few nerve endings there.

I will say always check the shed for eye caps and tail tips.
