This happened to Kismet, our Cyclura. It was dry gangrene that formed after a minor injury and that portion of her tail had to be amputated. You need to call a local reptile vet in your area. What kind of iggy is this? Can you post a pic?

Marley got this as well. He is missing the very tip of his tail. I agree that your ig should see a vet and soon because it will continue to spread up the tail further if it is ignored.
