What are your water parameters (ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH)?
Do you have abrasive decorations?
What do you normally feed your fish?
What other fish are there?
How big is the tank?
Does the wound look like it has red/pink filaments as well?
What other unusual signs did you observe?

Assuming the issue is simply injury, I'd keep the fish isolated in another tank and do daily water changes until it heals itself.
