Please help! New to aquariums!

Hi everyone! So I have three red bellied piranhas for about 3 months now, and everything has been wonderful! Yesterday I noticed a white spot on one of my ps and it has gotten bigger its just one on the side of his head I guess maybe on the gill closest. It does appear to be raised but not furry. He has another spot on his head but I think it's from swimming to quickly. I've been trying to get a picture but he's very camera shy and swims away from me. He's acting normal very active and eating alot still! I just am not sure what this spot is! Can anyone help me! With an idea even of what it could be?Thank you!!
Victoria

Sounds like it could be a bacterial infection.

Can you try to get a picture? Even a few blurry ones are better than nothing. Trust me my fish are definitely NOT camera shy, but my camera sucks so most of my pictures are blurry.

I would say a bacterial infection, but another member will have to confirm it.

Thank you! Do you know what to do to help treat it? How long will it take? And what causes this.
