Dwarf gourami severe injury.

I was using a siphon to clean out my tank, i was using it without the gravel vac attachment because i was using it to spot-clean, my dwarf gourami swam right up against it and got sucked against the tube then jerked away, now he has a circular mark that is a whitish color against his body, he is a little freaked out, but other than that i cant see other injuries on his body. What should i do? I dont have a hospital tank, this is my only tank and i dont have money to buy medication unless it is absolutely necessary. I have aquarium salt if that is useful for anything.

Aquarium salt should help it heal a little faster. I have seen similar wounds and they healed fine. Give it a day and see how he responds.
