Can you separate the two? He should heal on his own, but put him in a hospital tank just in case.

Then he should be fine. Just stay on top of your water changes, and your water perameters, and try not to medicate unless you have to. If anything starts to go wrong, you know where to go.

Watch it, but I think that's ok. And keep up good diet to help it heal faster.

You might try to heat up the water a bit. The fish should recover faster...
