first off - does it have any tank mates? - if so quarantine him - make sure the water is changed regularly. I have no clue what it could be, would you be able to post a pic - that will give us a better idea.

Oh no, I think you should try to lower you Ph a bit, check your NitrAtes, they can at high levels cause sickness - they should be at about 20ppm. Raise your temp a little, to about 29' Celsius - Ask if you can salt bath a gourami, I don't think you can but its worth a try, Otherwise, Theres not much we can do until we can identify what is wrong with your fish.  And Remember to do frequent water changes, please. The cleaner the water the better the chance of your fishy recovering.

Check to see if there are any sort of parasites, look very closely.  It could cause inflammation like that.

Keep us posted, do try to take pictures.
Good luck
