Treating Fin Rot in a CYCLED Tank???

I've succesfully cured fin rot in the past with the clean water and salt method but this was when my tanks were NOT cycled.

How do you do it in a cycled tank? Do you still do daily water changes? How much? 50%, 100%? I'm a little confused to be honest.
Should I raise the temperature?

Thanks in advance

Sorry for the 2-post.

I just started using IAL in my cycled tanks. Will it help curing the rot or should I stick with the salt?

I'm not sure about the water changes, but I bet they'll help if anything. I would probably do 50% changes so you don't risk throwing the tank into a 'mini-cycle'. Also, I've read IAL have anti-fungal/anti-bacterial properties and that they can help with fin rot and fin regrowth. You can try it for a while and see if it helps, if not you can always go back to salt. Hope your fishy feels better soon.
