    Head doesn't look like it will recover i would siphon as much off as possible as it will spread and infect the rest. Once dipped il remove that head and discard.

    The head will not recover. I would cut off the dead head and do a dip. Keep an eye on the remaining heads.

    That head is a goner. Rather remove before it spread to the other heads.
