    Hm, if he recently shed is there a possibility that not all of the shed has come off? I would suggest (if you can without stressing him too much) giving him a soak for about 10 to 15 minutes in a warm bath with water up to just below his belly, and then try to take a q-tip and "roll" the dead skin off of the tail. There is also a "shed-aid" product that I used to find at petco that helped. I'm not sure if it's suitable to use on chameleons though...
