Exclamation Friend's Betta Looks Wierd

My friend's Betta looks Wierd. It has some puffs (like cotton hanging on its tail). I put some of the blue medicine (forgot what is it called) and salt. What should I do? My friend won't come back for a while too!

i dont know what the blue medicine is right now, is it parasitic medicine or general cure. melafix, bettafix? but i know aq salt is good for external issues with bettas. right now i would say that its either excess slime coat or a parasite. (but im no expert.) can you post some pictures?

Sounds more like a fungus if it's fluffy. either that or excess slime coat.

Up the water changes and keep the salt at 1 tsp/gal to see if that helps any combined with the medication should it treat fungus.

If it's excess slime coat, have your friend change the water more when they return since shedding slime coat usually means there's something bothering in the water.
