Looks like an abrasion. Ed has a possible fix for you.

I would see what the vet has to say about it.

You may want to make sure there's not something in your tank you should remove. Make sure there is not a rough stone, or piece of wood, that your frogs may be burrowing under, picking up more abrasions.

What about mixing it with an antifungal? I dont know if that is overkill.

I had a frog with nose rub and used a triple antibiotic ointment mixed with miconazole cream at 50/50 mixture and it cleared right up. I added the antifungal just in case. I am paranoid about fungus for some reason.
