Unhappy Injury

Stupid me. ( and Mars) I just cleaned his tank and noticed something. He has some scales missing from his head. Again. Last time it happened I was really worried but then he healed. Now its bigger and I was just wondering if there is anyway to speed up the healing process? I hate to see him like that.
Here's what happened:
I was pouring the water back into the tank when Mars got caught up in it. He was then pushed onto the gravel and I think he scratched his head.
Any advice is appreciated.
p.s I know hes a little bloated. He ate a little too much bloodworms.

When you say "now it's bigger..." do you mean:
a) It's grown in size since he injured it?
b) Or the injury this time is larger than the injury he had a previous time?

An injury that is growing in size can indicate that an infection has set in.
