“I know you didn’t mean to hurt him, but hearing about your perfect score was salt in the wound after he failed a test for the first time.” 「傷づけるつもりはなかったのはわかっているが、初めて赤点を取った彼にはあなたが満点を取ったというニュースは傷口に塩だった。」


If someone is hurt, and something happens that makes the hurt worse, we call that “salt in the wound”. If you cut yourself, it hurts, but if salt gets into the cut, it will hurt even more! You can rub salt in someone’s wound on purpose to be mean, or by accident.
