Can anyone tell me what is going on with this discus and if the API general cure will treat it? It's a friend of mine fish and she said it seemed to appear out of no where and that no other fish in the tank are doing it.

Looks like external parasites? Do you have the general cure? What does the bottle say it treats? I suspect you would need the specific medication.

Hole in the head disease, usually caused by hexamita or something like that.

Metronidazole should work but it's a sign the tank is not as clean as it could be. Make sure the tank gets a huge water change and gravel clean every week.
