Default Help, I injured a Rosy Barb

When I knicked it with a stainless steel planting tool. I knew it happened as I felt it but the injury did not show up for a week. Now she is swollen and I can see the sore on her side.

I have a heavily planted 50 gal soil tank capped with just 6 Rosy Barbs and 2 Cory cats (yes I need more) my water is soft (well water) but I used Dolomites (?) in the soil to balance this. I have 1 large sponge filter with power head and a hang on the back with foam media that I clean every 2 weeks rotating the cleaning between the 2 filters.

How can I help this Rosy survive my stupidity in not watching where the plant tool was.....
