Default Greenish cracking tail?

I just got a new hedgie maybe a week and a half ago and I noticed her tail looks off compared to my other hedgies. Any ideas what this could be?

Has she had green poops? Have you tried giving her a bath? It looks dirty to me.

Definitely had green poops for a while because of stress from changing homes. I gave her a bath but her tail still looks a little green. It might just be stained but I'm worried about the cracking.

The cracking looks like dry skin to me. Try rubbing a bit of flaxseed oil or vitamin E oil on it and see if that helps.

I'll try to but she's still quite afraid of me. It's difficult to get in there. Lol. Got that picture when she was sleeping.
