Red Spot On Goldfish

My favorite goldfish has a sudden red bump that appeared. It honestly has the appearance of a pimple. I checked water conditions. Ammonia 0. Nitrate 20 ppm. Ph 7. Any ideas what it is? I think maybe its just a scrape. Pictures below. Sorry they aren't better he or she never holds still. Still has plenty of appetite.

Beautiful Oranda! I've been wanting that color for forever. Absolutely gorgeous. I'm so sorry about the red spot, but unfortunately I don't have much experience sicknesses. It's a good sign that he has a good appetite. I would do extra water changes just to help him heal up faster. Hopefully someone can pinpoint what that is so you can get him on the mend. I just wanted to stop by and tell you you have the most beautiful fish in the world. : )

Thank you for the comment. I am quite proud of him or her myself. :) The spot looks a little smaller today. It's not raised any more so here's hoping. I treated with antI fungal medication.

Well I hope things continue to get better. I can understand your concern with such a gorgeous fish. Good luck, and I hope that works!
