Help. Two growths on back and scales look bad

derekB

The attached photo should highlight the problem. The fish has two quite pronounced growths just forward of the dorsal fin. The scales adjacent to the c=growth do not look right, slight yellowing.
I have isolated the fish and added so general purpose treatment.
Grateful for any help from anyone who knows more about this

How quickly did this happen? There are some viruses commonly found in cyprinids, especially koi and goldfish, that can cause odd growths, but it's hard to know without testing them for a viral infection. This could also be a bacterial issue, maybe they are infected cysts? At this point, if treatment isn't working, I would either see an aquatic vet or humanely euthanize. It's hard to know what this could be without actually taking samples and looking at them microscopically.
