Goldfish help!

Sorry if this in the wrong spot, I'm new here!

My girlfriend got me a goldfish for valentines day. She cycled it properly and I changed the water two days ago. I cycled the water properly and I noticed a white/red patch on his forehead. I figured he had gotten a scratch during transfer. I did some research on the internet and it turned out that it could become infected. I took all of the sharp objects out of the bowl and purchased and put in ~.7mL for a 3L bowl. I've been researching further and application directly to the fish is mentioned. Any thoughts on what else I could do to help him get better, or regarding direct application and how I would go about it?

Thanks !

I'm sorry for your loss. Goldfish don't really do well in bowls, though.
