Recurring Dropsy?

Asking for help with Cherry my redcap. Iím really struggling and out of ideas. Since Dec heís had on/off bloating and a few raised scales so I treated as dropsy. Otherwise totally fine- eating pooping fins fine bright/lively. Iíve done Epsom baths, furan + kanaplex (5 days) plus K in food and each time swelling went... back in main tank and over maybe 2 weeks returned. So Iíd repeat the above. Iíve done this maybe 4 times. Then I tried Maracyn, same results. The swelling just comes back. I feed repashy/ hikari/ gel daphnia/ bug bites. Yesterday really big and slightly lethargic so Iím trying maracyn plus maracyn 2. Plus Epsom in hosp tank.I donít know what else.. hard as Iím in uk too. This morning he looks less swollen and brighter but Iím sure the cycle will continue. Iím thinking a bacterial infection so maybe treat with antibiotics for longer 🤷🏼*♀️🤷🏼*♀️
Latest main tank stats:
No3 18 No2 0 GH 14d KH 4.5d ph 7 CL 0 Ammonia 0
