      What I see appears to be a bacterial infection on the upper part of the front of the head. Bacterial infections can be treated by a number of different treatments, but for this I would probably sedate the fish with clove oil, (https://www.koiphen.com/forums/showt...ive-Discussion Part 17), then dry the affected area, mop the area with iodine or hydrogen peroxide to sterilize the area, and then dry and rub on a triple antibiotic ointment, revive the fish in fresh clean water and return to the quarantine tank.

      Because the fishes immune system works best in warm, clean, non-toxic water, we really, really like to see numbers. We can help to correct many water quality issues if we can see numbers for ammonia, nitrite, pH, KH, nitrate, temperature. A fish that is being stressed by poor water quality has a harder time of recovering than the same fish in great water.

      Please furnish numbers, preferably by drop type test instead of dip strips.

      When debriding the infected area: make sure the iodine or H2O2 dose no get into the fishes mouth, eyes or on its gills. Unfortunately this location is very hard to unless you take it very slow and probably only use Q-tips. A saturated cotton ball may hold too much liquid and it will run down on the lowest area. Usually the side of the fish you cannot see until after it has happened.

      If it is healing as you said , why treat? I would just concentrate in having pristine water conditions and apply more of the product as directions indicate. If it starts to get worse (spreading,redder) than fallow other treatments mentioned.
