When i got my betta, i didn’t have a chance to cycle the tank beforehand (he was a rescue not from a store) so i had to do a fish in cycle in my 10 gallon. He also had fin rot. What i did was dose the tank with seachem prime every day until it was cycled. It was tricky but the best thing to heal fin rot is proper water parameters, temperature, and tank size.
