As for Razz he is looking better which is good. Recovery and fighting off parasites is always hard, but Bettas are fighters
I found a picture online that shows what gill flukes looks like. It's the best pic I could find. Here are some symptoms I found on another forum.
1) Fish twitching the head side to side once in a while like if wanted to shake something off his head.
2) Discolored blotches of skin (Most people think this is velvet or some bacterial infection and misdiagnose it with antibiotics)
3) Frayed fins or tail.
4) Sudden loss of appetite.
5) Cloudy eye(s)
6) Rapid breathing
