Hi,

You would need to anaesthetize the koi and clean up the affected areas. You may also need to trim the fin down. Use hydrogen peroxide on a cotton bud to clean the affected areas, then clean and dry and apply some neat malachite or other topical treatment.

As an aside, buying fish from pond clearances can be a dangerous game :law-policered:

Salt and acriflavin is a good combination. If it is clearing up then leave it, but another dose of acriflavin in a week will do no harm .
