My little trooper... Still going.

For the longest time, Leroy has had popeye, and I can't get anything to cure it. Well, tonight, like I do once a week, i take a flashlight and examine my fishes.
Upon this, I discovered the most horrific sight. Dropsy. He has it... My baby has dropsy.
I've yet to read about a recovery from the awful killing... THING. Not a single person has ever told me that dropsy is curable.
So I rush him upstairs, get him on maracyn, bettafix, and salt.
But... It's popeye, dropsy, gill, and fin rot.
I feel soooooo horrible. I can't stop crying. I feel so bad.
So, is there any help on how to stop the pain from losing my little guy? Cause it's killing me..... And him. :(

Have you tried Epsom salt 2-3tsp/gal...sadly...rarely do they recover once you see the symptom dropsy....usually their system is starting to shut down...but don't give up too soon.......

I put two tsp Aq salt in one gal. Does Epsom work better?

Really sorry to hear about this. Its a terrible feeling I know. I would definately use Epsom salt over aquarium salt if thats what OFL suggests. Good luck.
