Exclamation Axolotl abrasion starting to peel??

Hi, everyone.
My name is Madison and one of my precious axolotls Asher has recently gotten a pretty bad abrasion on one of his back legs. I noticed this about two days ago and was instantly worried. Heíll be quarantined in about two days once the quarantine tank is done cycling. At the start I noticed a tiny bit of blood in the sand and a Ďsemi-mangledí leg. Itís looking a bit better now but Iíve noticed it a bit red and less mangled. Now it looks like skin is peeling. Should I be worried? Is this normal?? Does it mean heís healing? Iíve tried to attach images. I keep my tank at about 64-67 Fahrenheit. I do week and a half-ly water changes and add water conditioner. Please let me know. Iím really stressed and having mini anxiety attacks.
Thanks,
Madison
