1 big white bulging spot on fantail goldfish

I have a fantail goldfish and it has a white spot on it, it isn't a tiny microscopic white spot colony (as you see with ich) instead it is like a white pimple on the goldfish. I have isolated the goldfish from the other ones in a bucket with a air stone and treating it with API MELAFIX. Should I have treated the others? As they all appear healthy unlike this poor one (who keeps on sitting at the bottom of the tank)

UPDATE - The goldfish seems to be a bit more active and the white spot has decreased (80 percent gone) should I release it back with the others? Or shall I wait for the full 7 day melafix treatment?

Thank you

I will upload a picture later if needed

I'd wait. Where was/is the spot located? What kind of goldfish? And what in the tank size and other fish in the tank?
