Help, please! Scales/Skin Scraped Off.

Yesterday, my dojo loach got stuck in one of my aquarium ornaments (shaped like a jug--he got stuck in the handle). I had to grab his tail and push him out in order to "un-stick" him. In the process, some of his skin got scraped off and he has a white patch on one side. He is acting normal, and he ate today. Will his skin grow back? What should I do?

(I was told that dojo loaches have skin and NOT scales--is that true?)

Thanks!
