If you have a quarantine tank, why didn't you put it in there from the start? All new fish should be quarantined.

Posting a pic is always helpful.

I would do water changes and see if that doesn't clear it up in several days time. If not, then medication is needed.

Oh, it seemed like the sequence of events was that the fish developed the problem and then was put in a QT.

If its small and caught early, water changes should take care of it. However, I would get the med now so you have it if you need it. The second it gets worse I would medicate, and if it doesn't start improving after several water changes, then i would medicate.
