      Sushui with ulcer

      I had taken some koi to the long island koi show and i was chasing around a bunch of fish with the net. I assume my sushui might of scraped himself on something. You can't tell from the pics but it looks like the affected area is raised off the skin.
      Is this an ulcer? I have a bacterial powder called wipe out for fin rot and ulcers i can use to treat the pond.
      Water temp if 50 degrees. There is no temp warning on the label. Will it work in this temp?

      I don't see an ulcer anywhere. Since this is a doitsu, I'm guessing one of the large scales ripped off (this is common). Everything should be fine - just keep an eye on it but I don't anticipate any issues.

      If this is a scrape, I would give it another day before intervening. If there is redness tomorrow, you can do the topical treatment.

      You can use the antibiotic powder, it's not harmful or an issue at your temp.
      The reason we mention temps regarding infections is that the immune system functions better in temps over 72 degrees. It doesn't mean that topical applications won't work, it is simply more likely to take longer given the cooler water temps.
      Still learning as I go but y'all can call me Marilyn

      Thanks guys, i do try to look for things when im feeding them so i can catch issues early. one of the people in my koi club said i should put some iodine on it then some basitration. I might do that as a precaution and keep an eye on it.
