Abrasions?

Hi, two of my eight clowns have, what looks like, pretty nasty abrasions between their dorsal and tail fins.It is pinkish/white in colour and appears as if their "skin" have been rubbed off. The abrasions are also not uniform in size or shape. While I thinks it may just be from fighting, they have other scars (though these are thin lines), or from when they force themselves through small openings in their "home", I would like to know if anyone knows if it is in fact a disease or parasite I should be treating.
Thanx
