Blue tang

Does anyone know what this is? It's like white/grey patches
- it's a little around it's face but then a big patch around his tail

Looks to be a body fungus type infection of those areas. Possible it injured itself at those places by scratching. If you can catch him and put him in a hospital tank, I'd treat with Furan 2 which attacks both gram + and gram - organisms.
Hope this helps

Look up marine velvet see if that's what it looks like to you.

Looks like a fungus. If go with what Andy suggested. Seems to have better reviews.

What is this? I've been treating him for fungus but I'm just making sure that's what it is

If it was fungus it would be outside the skin. That looks like a lesion into the skin. Is that what it is? Hard to tell from the pic.
