Thanx for responding so much. He is off meds for 1 week tomorrow. He was last on 7days Melafix then 6 days of Melafix + Pimafix, the Kanacyn was for 3 or 4 days alone, then I added Furan II for a total of about 10 days (things worsened), the triple sulfa was for 12 days (the black began to disappear but I didn't want to keep medicating so long), marcynII was the first thing I tried since it worked when I first got him. I used a full course, but no improvement at all. Salt was for 10 days at 1 tsp/gal. I know this is a ridiculous amount of med, but he just keeps getting worse!
I can't use Tetracycline because my Ph is 7.6, & it is ineffective at PhDs over 7.5. I bought Marcyn, but was trying to hold off as long as possible. I've never tried methylene blue, don't know if that is strong enough to stop this. I know most infections are gram negative, but I thought the Kanacyn/Furan would have knocked that out. Below is a pic from a couple weeks ago & one from today.
