Photos always help when you need help diagnosing an illness. If you could post some pics then you may get a better diagnosis.

It's possibly a bacterial infection that has become ulcerous and may have been caused by poor water conditions..

You say it was like that when you got it so hopefully if your water is OK then any other fish will be fine but you could treat them with an anti-bacterial like eSHa 2000 to be on the safeside.

Keep the infected fish in isolation, treat it with an anti-bacterial but I would not hold out much hope of recovery.
