Help with Clown Please!

Ok. Do you have any suggestions?
Formalin? Garlic? I really haven't up to this point researched medications so I am not sure where to start.

Thank you all for your guidance.

Help with Clown Please!

Ok so we made it through the night. I did end up doing a freshwater dip for 2:45 minutes. I felt my fish handled it very well aside from one attempt to jump out of the bucket. I made sure the temp was ok and that the water was agitated and to not let him rest on the bottom on the bucket the whole time. I noticed a ton of fall off of the white fuzzy stuff and felt that almost 3 minutes was probably all that I myself could take. And sense he's already sick I know he didn't need this extra stress. He's now in a QT tank and looking pretty good in terms of fins being extended and no terrible looking white gunk on him. He looks like he's also regaining a little control over his mouth. The biggest change is definitely in his facial color returning to normal. Once the LFS opens I'll be heading there for meds.

Well I'm not seeing any new growths. And the ones he's had have gone away. but now he's staying mostly belly on the bottom of the tank. I still cannot get him to eat...I figured I'd try live brine shrimp just to see if he'd go for something that moved. unfortunately I had to go to work so I couldn't watch him for very long

And his face is still not looking good in terms of color. his face looks white
