losing his scales

Ok so I bought my daughter a betta from petsmart and have had him for almost 2 months. A few days ago I was looking at Rex and noticed a spot on his side by his gills. Didnt pay too much mind to it because I didnt think it was that serious. Well I was wrong because now its all over his side. Its like something is eating away at him. What is it and is there anything I can do? I keep him in a glass fish bowl, use spring water everytime and I change the water once a week. What am I doing wrong?

i just have him in a round glass fish bowl. the last time i checked the temp on the water last week when i changed it was 78 degrees. i thought it might be ich but he doesnt have white spots on him. it looks like something ate his scales off on one side. it keeps getting worse each day. he didnt eat for 2 days, but now he is acting like his normal self. i will try to post a picture of him
