Unhappy Returning Fin Rot

I've been treating my betta, Sulu for fin Rot for 3-4 weeks now. He is in a 1 gallon heated hospital tank. He's very active and healthy seeming otherwise but every time that his tail shows white regrowth it eventually returns to its previous shredded state. His fins are also still very red and haven't shown any improvement. I have been doing 100% daily water changes with prime or stress coat and have no idea what I'm doing wrong, he just doesn't seem to be recovering.

Are you sure it's fin rot and he isn't just biting it off?

The tail is red, but it doesn't look like fin rot, just ragged fins....to me, anyways. The red looks like it's a part of his coloring, judging by the way is ventrils look (they're a shade of red that matches his tail) and fin rot doesn't turn the whole tail itself red, just the tips that are 'rotting' away

Hmm, you might be right. I guess I just thought that it was fin rot because his fins used to be blue and the red was only at the tip of the tail. If it is biting, are there anyways to curb this?
