Question treatment for hole in the head

Is there any known treatment for hole in the head that works?
I have seen some meds out there (such as metronidazole) but I would like to hear from someone with personal experience.

thank you.

Ouch, I would QT to fish and lower the salinity slowly to help in it's recovery. I would also look into soak frozen food in garlic guard and get an antibacterial med, like maracyn just in case it comes up with a secondary infection.
