If the spot looks like pits on face I would just keep water quality up and offer food that is vitamin enriched for the tang .
HLLE ,not hole in the head but Head and Lateral Line Erosion .
Not a disease and possibly a hyposalinty issue [as many hypo tangs to kill ich] and also thought to be a vitamin deficiency.
