I don't know the particulars of your tank nor your tank maintenance routine, but an aggressive water change routine with slightly warmer water with a teaspoon of standard aquarium salt for every 5 gallons of new, treated water and a good diet of a variety of frozen foods won't hurt.
In the tanks that require it, I change out half the water in my Fancy Guppy tanks every week. I make the new, treated water a little bit warmer.
You can also feed a little minced garlic. It contains a number of vitamins and is a natural antibiotic.
Try these for a few weeks. Good nutrition and pure water conditions can only help your fish.
