African Mudskipper Itchy & Scratching itself raw

Aloha, I'm in serious need of help! I have an African mudskipper who has been flicking and scratching on his dock to the point of becoming raw in areas on his back! I don't visually see any reason for this behavior, but I'm guessing parasites of some sort. I have never had a mudskipper before, nor can I find much information on them. I'm worried that he will die without some kind of intervention. However, I have NO IDEA what is safe to use on/with mudskippers? Any and all advise would be greatly appreciated! Even if it's to point me in the right direction to find answers.
Mahalo

This is the only thing I've found so far, I didn't read it in depth but it's someone talking about using antibiotics.
