Internal Parasites/Constipated Help

I suspect one of my betta is suffering from Internal Parasites (or maybe Constipated), The Stomach look full (Just nice type). Been 1 days since he never eat (plan to let it go foodless for 3 days), Scale everything is ok, But the poop is white colour (got poop 1 time).

He is blowing bubble but keep hanging up near the surface of the water. Can someone recommend what the best treatment for it?

Been keeping him in age water with espom salt in his tank, for almost 2 days. no poop yet. Trying to feed pea, but not eating.

Any idea usaully it take how long to cure?
