It sounds like there isn't much you can do... You might have to euthanize her to save her from unnecessary suffering, at this point, I think she might be beyond healing.... :(

I think I am going to have to euthanize her. It has eaten away her entire mouth area, not just the lips :(. She freaks out now because it is hard for her to get air. It is really bad, like super fuzzy now. Her stress stripes are darker than I have ever seen them. I think it is time guys :(.

So Sorry :(

Which method are you using? The ice cold water method has worked well for me in the past.

Clove Oil.

She has just passed. I only had her for about one month. I remember she was the tiniest little girl at Petco. I never even decided on a name for her though.

The whole time I had her, she had stress bars on and off and her colors were very dull. It wasn't until she had gone to sleep that her stress bars went away and her full colors showed. She was beautiful, a metallic-y indigo color.

:(

I'm sorry Turtle. :( You did the right thing. Poor little thing can rest in peace. Columnaris is often a killer.
