Advice on bacterial infections

Hi all,

I am new to this website I have 2 baby ranchu lionhead goldfish 1 of which is showing signs of a bacterial infection, he has white stringy poo he is off his food he has a swollen belly at the back near his tail fins, I have tried starving him, tried giving him peas to relieve his constipation, as I was convinced he had swim bladder problems, but now after no improvement I am stuck as to what to do now, he is also half way through a course of antibiotic treatment for swimbladder any hints/tips greatly welcome . Thanx
