QT regardless. Don't let it spread. I was just trying to get some ideas flowing so the OP could start somewhere looking for a cure or remedy.

The tang and the foxface might have been fighting

My understanding is coral and anemone stings will leave dark spots on fish. Yours is red. Based on this I would rule out an anemone sting and side with bacterial infection.

I wouldn't treat in the DT. I never add any medicines or chemicals to my DT. Some will make a skimmer go crazy too so if you find a reef safe medication make sure your skimmer doesn't overflow

I wouldn't say this is a bacterial infection as it appears to be a surface wound. I should clear up as long as its not be harassed at all. If it is an infection you may see it spread to other fish. Do you see any other fish with similar symptoms? is the fish feeding well?
