Is salt safe on ammonia burned goldfish?


Recommended Posts

Last week I rescued a small fancy fantail from a pet shop with black marks that I believe are from ammonia burns. I am pretty sure that they are healing burns because their black color is beginning to fade after a few days in my clean cycled 10 gallon quarantine tank with fresh water, conditioned with Seachem Prime. Upon close examination it looks like there are a couple tiny spots forming that look like fungus. My question is, can I use aquarium salt as treatment when the fish is healing from ammonia burns? 
My water parameters are:

ammonia:0  nitrite:0    Nitrate:10  ph: 7.8

Thanks, I would appreciate any feedback.
