 Water Dragon black /white spot

My 3 month old Water Dragon just got off a shed and I noticed on his(below the shed) tail he had a black spot with white in the middle. Anyone know what this is?

I’m not sure what it may be. I’d definitely keep an eye on it. It does look as though his scales are missing on the black spot. It may be the picture though.
Are you vitamin dusting? What do his meals consist of?
I recently started dusting as I have a hatchling rescue that had lost his tail due to stress. I am using Zoomed’s vitamin powder and WOW has it made a HUGE difference. His tail has grown almost an inch in a month and his color has become SO vibrant.
Our staple diet is Dubia roaches dusted with vitamin powder. Beyond that our dragons get dusted crickets, meal worms, wax worms, and live fish (in their pond) as variety and "treats".
Hope the best and please keep us posted. The more active this forum is the better it is for all those involved.

I am feeding him gut loaded Crickets and Waxworms, He/She doesn’t eat anything that’s not live. I dust my crickets and wax worms with Repti Calcium(twice a week) and Reptivite(once a week). It does seem to have digressed since I first saw it. In person it looked like a zit that needed to be squeezed or some kind of a water blister.

A couple weeks ago I thought I saw a thread on here with the exact same thing I haven’t been able to find that thread with hours of searching, Hopefully the thread starter will see this.

Bottom photo is unrelated just thought it was cute :) That was him/her a week into purchase 8 weeks of age.

Could I feed him butter worms at this age 3months? Or something more nutritious than crickets and wax worms, I am very interested in swapping the crickets for Dubias I only hear good things about them, Problem is I haven’t been able to find any sellers of them up here in the GTA(Toronto, Canada)

Also the black spot at the bottom is shed coming off, I’m talking about the white spot near his rear.

It has nearly fully regressed, I went from misting three times a day to two times a day.

I’m assuming it was probably some kind of water blister?

water blister?? thats unheard of... burn maybe? chemical or heat. maybe a bruise from falling which can occur easily. does it effect him? does he move when u touch it. does he walk different smell different?? just leave it. if it dont get worse i wouldnt waste your time at the vets! ive dealt with them in your area. if you can read a book you can diagnose as easily as them
