Default Is my Koi having a scale/skin disease or normal loose scale?

Hi.. May i enquire, i noticed this on my Koi recently.. are those scales/skin disease or normal loose scales..? Or its just normal?

So far the said Koi still eats normally, swims normally.. but im just worried if it could affect other fishes if it is a disease. Ive also salt bath the Koi and massage the affected area on its body.. Please help..

This is considered normal for a doitsu koi.

stumbled upon this thread but I can't seem to view the images anymore

hence like to ask the old birds and experienced bros here on some questions about my yamabuki doitsu

http://s3.photobucket.com/user/joshd...?sort=4&page=1

it seems to have some reddish pigmentation on some parts of its body

but is swimming, eating normally
no flashing, isolation, clamped fins issues
none of my other kois have this 'redness' too

should I be concerned?

paiseh about the quality of the pictures.
was taken with my phone
