Wounded Fish or ICH?

I just got home from a 3 day trip and my 2 damsels have what looks like wounds on them (I could only get pics of the 1 that is really visible). I am hoping that they are from bumping the anemone, but I doubt it. Please try to help ID what these guys have

It`s not ick.. Ick is like salt grains sprinkled over the fish. Damsels are very aggressive . I`m thinking it`s from fighting. What does the other damsel look like?

the other one has a small much less severe mark that looks similar. They were added to the tank together about a month ago.

Thanks for the response. Happy Holidays

My only concern for these type injuries are a secondary bacterial infection. You`ll really need to make your water the best it can be. I would do weekly PWC`s and have a QT ready in case you have to treat. If the one in the pic gets worse I would treat in a QT.
