I'm a noob on this topic, never having owned and axolotl before, but to me it looks very similar to what's on this page (Axolotl Requirements (http://www.axolotl.org/requirements.htm)) about stress.
He could just be a little stressed out from moving around and not being well.

I thought I'd just tell you that, because I understand you're very worried about Smokey.
I hope both you and Smokey get better soon.

(Anyone else, you are very welcome to correct me, I'm just judging based on similarities)

It could just result of stress in general, not just of water temp changes, but I have no idea.
It's possible that it's a fungus, but as I said, I have no experience in this area.

You might have to be a bit patient and wait for someone with more experience to come online for a proper answer.

You said on your other thread that he's been getting better, maybe it might take a little while for everything to clear up completely, but as it's been there for a few days and he seems to be getting better it might be safe to leave him be until you get an answer.

I'd send you a pic but I don't actually own one yet.
Hence my noob status in axie knowledge
