Fin rot not getting better even with Kanaplex

Rain's been on Kanaplex, and at first it seems to have slowed down the fin rot, but these few days I've seen it starting on his dorsal too. Can anyone help me?

I do a 100% daily now, and it's still not getting better. And I'm not using bettafix since it contains a tree oil that coats their labyrinth organ making it hard for them to breath. It may be much more diluted than melafix, but I'm not risking it.
