Sick ocellaris clownfish

I have had a female clownfish that I bought about a year ago. She recently got some white stuff on her eye while in my display tank. It didnít look like Popeye, it was just something that was growing over her eye. It would start in one eye and then start on the other eye. I took her out from the display tank and put her in a qt tank. I treated with melafix and api fungus cure and it was completely gone. I put her after 6 weeks back in the dt and she got it again in 4 days. Now she is in a qt tank again and it has gotten pretty bad. I am trying the same meds, but they arenít working? Any help?

I would treat again for starters.
How often are you doing water changes? I always recommend doing 10% weekly. On top of that, most likely there is a parameter issue in the water column. Iíd be doing large water changes through the week, no larger than 50% of the water column at one time.
