    Hi All,

    Want to ask.... my uncle friend have a kohaku that keeps developing small tumours on its head...

    He treats them - they heal - and another one would pop up again some time later.

    Can the sifus out there advice how best to treat this Kohaku? The head area have become very unsightly with the tumors coming and going... it's been some time now....

    Also, he does not have all these antibiotics and syringes which might help... just a man who love his kois dearly...

    Please help. Thanks in advance! :)

    Gerry,
    Parts of the skin around the head and area around the mouth have been cut out. So I am not sure whether it is skin lescion, Hikui etc. But need to see the picture of the growth itself.....

    Thanks..........

    This look more like hole in the head disease. Put medication, it cure but after a while it start again.

    I have never had a personal experience with holes in the head for kois, but for those that had the problem said that re occurence is almost for sure to happen, and aways strike that very few individuals.......
