Red splotches on yellow tang

I don't know if this is in the right forum or not, but about two days ago I noticed some red splotches on my yellow tang near the tail. He is acting normal and eating normally and swimming actively as always. I have not noticed his scratching against rocks or anything else. My aquarium is peaceful and there had been no new additions for about 3 months. Just wondered if anyone else had this type of experience with a yellow tang. Thanks!

Usually a sign of a bacterial infection and often caused by poor water conditions, nutrition, trauma, or mixture thereof. Here's another thread where someone had the common reddened areas on their yellow tang. If yours is similar just follow my advice within the link
