Red Blood Like Sore On Hump

I came home for summer and brought my 2 ranchu. One of them is fine. The other is not so happy. I have had them for about 7 months. Been here for around 2 weeks and recently the one started to get worse.

It had floating problems for a while and since I bought it. It had got better @ home but currently has it the worse I have seen. It doesn't float upside or downside at the top of the water but more like does swirls when swimming or standing still. I moved them to a huge rubbermaid tank yesterday and put on the filter, etc.

I noticed it would wedge itself between the filter pipe and the bin on purpose to rest there.

This morning I noticed this. I since moved it back into the tank, added salt. It has bubbles, filter, and set the heater to 75F.

What medicine could I use? Mexaflix?
