Stress coat can help, but it may not fix the problem. Stress Coat improves the slime coat and helps lessen stress on your fish, it also is an ok water conditioner. =) If the damage is being done because the slime coat was damaged, it may help...but if it's a stubborn infection it'll need antibiotics. Clean water usually does the trick otherwise. =)
Stress coat may help lessen the stress on your fish from the water changes you've been doing. What you want is to keep clean, but don't over-clean, see? If your tank is properly stocked and you don't over-feed your fish, regular weekly changes should be doing it(30% should be keeping up with a properly stocked tank, less is fine for understocked tanks, over-stocked tank would need larger changes, but I don't know how many fish or what kind you have!). Also, make sure none of your other fish are picking at him as that prevents healing.
How big is your tank, what kind of fish do you have and how many of each? If you have improper stocking via either group sizes or fish that aren't the best idea, that could be an issue too, especially if you have nippy fish.
