    Actually, check out neon tetra disease... There are lots of threads on here about it. It's much more likely to be that, which seems to be mostly incurable and actually a tumorous growth, but the fish can live for several months with it. That being said, it is contagious, so any infected fish would have to be moved to a different tank. If it is cottonmouth, it is a bacterial infection, so unfortunately m blue wouldn't do much. Furan 2 or kanaplex would be your best bet.
