I don't think they look raised just maybe right on the spot where hr is super bloated. Also oldfishlady, you don't think the Epsom salt will hurt where his scales are gone?

No, the Epsom salt or even aquarium salt for that matter should not cause any problems with missing scale on scaled fish. They don't have nerve ending the way we do in relation to salt burning an open wound.
Their brain and nerves are wired different than mammals.

I would hold food for 2-3 days and then offer half of normal feeding-if he eats then increase as tolerated, smaller frequent feeding is better during treatment than large one time feeding IME
