Pleco Problem - looks like scales have been ripped off

So yesterday my fish was fine but I just looked at him today and it looks like something tore his skin/scales off. He was fine yesterday. Did an 80% WC earlier today because my lobster is also having issues. Other tank mates are fine and healthy.

Edit: could it be burns? He was really close to the heater during the WC and I didn't notice the problem at that time.
