Scale raised nicked during tank change

Fiero was not happy about being cupped and took off in the process it looks like he nicked a scale up. Can I just put some stress coat in to help it heal? I also just got some IAL in the mail yesterday. He is fine otherwise. I've not had this happen yet so I just want to be sure I treat him if needed.

IAL should help, but the main concern is to make sure it doesn't get infected. I don't now if you'd use AQ salt in a situatio such as this, but it doesn't seem too bad to worry too much :)
