On my girlfriends betta I have used Fungus Guard with sucess, I even had it at half dose because of her tetras. Be sure to check if it might be ich, in which case you'd have to use something else.

I would change the water more. It could be nitrates or ammonia. If there are no signs of illness yet, I would assume it's water quality.
