Will the skin lesion orovide a driect route to her blood when treating dropsy?

I have a girl with a kin infection and it fromed dropsy last night. I lost hope when I first saw it, but she is eating and swimming, so I figured why not. I think the infection got into her blood, so I got some pimafix. Would bettafix work better? Will the lesion help get the meds into her blood faster?

I have...never heard of that. This may be interesting if someone answers! I tried treating dropsy on a double hit (what a bad week for me...) with two bettas, heavy dosing, everything and they still passed. Because dropsy is more than likely the organs failing there really is a literal 1% chance of survival. And say that 1% happened, the fish would have a very difficult life...

Do you have the picture of the girl? Are you sure it's a skin infection? Is she severely bloated?

Yeah, I let myself get my hopes up, but I netted her to clean her water, and she jumped and once she hit the ground, she just stopped moving, I put her in her jar and she would sit at the bottom and only swim up for air, spurratically, too, then she started floating, breathing, but floating, and then she went :(
