I wouldn't. The fungus could become worse and the "burn" sounds like it could be HLLE or the scaring that is often left behind after it clears up. I would suggest placing the angel in a QT and watch it's health. Feed with vitamin fortified foods and be prepared to treat with an antibiotic for the fungal infection. Maracyn II at double the dose for 7 days. The fungus could be from the poor water quality and/or feeding at the LFS and may recover on it's own if the problem is small. If it's wide spread, I would treat as soon as possible.
